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 keep an eye this as the IND does check this regularly. The fines in case of non-compliance may be considerable.

At the beginning of every new year, we announce the salary requiments in a blog.
