Recognized Sponsor IND
Are you considering hiring an employee with a non-European nationality? Then it is wise to apply for recognition as a sponsor for your company. This is a specific status issued by the IND, which makes it easier and faster to legally allow the newest employee to work and live in the Netherlands.
A reliable partner of the IND
Are you as an employer not yet a recognized sponsor by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) and looking to hire non-European employees?
Then applying for recognition as a sponsor is the very first step that needs to be taken to be considered a reliable partner of the IND.
The IND assesses whether your organization meets all the conditions to hire knowlegde migrants (highly skilled migrants, researchers, intra-corporate transferees (ICT), European Blue Card, etc.). After approval, you can enjoy several benefits such as:
- Handing in fewer documents and evidence
- Submitting applications online
- Faster processing of residence permit applications, often within 2 weeks
- Registration of the company in the public register of recognized sponsors
Are you not yet a recognized sponsor by the IND?
We can fully take care of the application process on behalf of your company. Of course, you will be kept informed of the progress.
