What is the salary Highly Skilled Migrants must receive?
The highly skilled migrant (HSM) procedure is used for employees with a non-EU nationality who work on a local (Dutch) contract. The question if those employees are highly skilled is measured by their income level, not so much through their educational or professional background. So, what is the minimum salary highly skilled migrants must receive?
Salary highly skilled migrants
The HSM salary requirement changes per year. It is very important that the salaries of your non-EU highly skilled migrants always meet the requirement, even if the employee works parttime. We strongly advise you to check this as the IND does check this regularly.
At the beginning of every new year, we announce the salary requiments in our blog.
Our highly skilled migrant permit service
Settle Service offers many immigration services, including application for the HSM permit. We inform the employer and the employee about the required documents and will prepare and submit the immigration documents. We coordinate any necessary appointments at the GGD for a TB test and immigration authorities. During the process, we keep all parties proactively informed.
“It was a great help for me at every step of my process to settle in NL, also the assistance at the GGD was great.“
