On January 2, 2013 by Dutch Umbrella Company

What are the 2013 income requirements for the knowledge migrant visa?

I am a highly skilled contractor from India and plan to start contracting in The Netherlands in June 2013. What are the 2013 income requirements for the knowledge migrant visa?

WePayPeople Expat Desk replies

The 2013 minimum income requirements for the knowledge migrant visa are as follows:

  • Highly skilled graduates who obtained their diploma in The Netherlands €27,336 (increased from €26,931);
  • Highly skilled migrants younger than 30 years of age €38,141 (increased from €37,575);
  • Highly skilled migrants 30 years of age or older €52,010 (increased from €51,239);
  • Holder of the EU Blue Card €60,952.

These salary levels can be inclusive of the 8% holiday allowance. There is no required salary level for scientific researchers or medical doctors training to be specialists.

While you contract in The Netherlands, WePayPeople can provide you with umbrella services, submit an application for the 30% ruling for your payroll and as an approved employer in the IND Highly Skilled Migrant Program, also apply for a knowledge migrant visa on your behalf.
