No new permit required for starting your own business

1 May 2017

From 1 April 2017, Blue Card holders, as well as knowledge migrants, scientists and students in possession of a valid license, have the opportunity to start their own business in the Netherlands next to their job or study. This does not require a new residence document.

These persons are, however, required to continue to comply with the conditions laid down in the license already granted.
