Immigration Status Services

When a (future) employee lives and works in the Netherlands for an extended period, it is crucial to monitor the immigration status to maintain compliance. Or perhaps you wish to hire an employee who is already living in the Netherlands.

Change of Employer

A “change of employer” applies when you recruit an employee who is or has been working in the Netherlands at another company. Though they have a valid work permit, it is necessary to follow the “change of employer” procedure when working for your company. We guarantee compliance.

Change of immigration status

A change of immigration status may apply when your employee no longer meets the condition(s) of the type of residence/work permit they currently hold. When they do not meet the permit conditions, they are no longer allowed to live or work in the Netherlands. We guarantee compliance.

Application for long-term residence permit

When an employee intends to stay in the Netherlands long term or permanently, you may want to apply for a permanent residence permit. A permanent residence permit can be applied for after a 5-year stay in the Netherlands.

Settle Service will inform on the documents needed and will prepare and submit the immigration documents. We will coordinate any necessary appointments with the immigration authorities.
