Netherlands: 2013 Salary criteria for highly-skilled migrants

2013 Salary criteria for highly-skilled migrants Highly-skilled migrants, key personnel and those holding a Blue Card must fulfil a salary criterion, which would be reviewed on an annual basis. On the 1st of January, 2013, the following gross annual wages will go into effect, including vacation pay:

  • Highly-skilled migrants from 30 years €52,010.-
  • Highly-skilled migrants younger than 30 years €38,141.-
  • People who graduated in the Netherlands €27,336.-
  • Corporate employees €52,010.-
  • Blue Card €60,952.-

To whom do these new rates apply?
The new rates apply to everyone who submits a request to the IND for an MVV (multiple entry clearance visa), a residence permit or a Blue Card, on or after 1 January, 2013. If an application for an MVV is submitted before that date, the wage criterion for 2012 would apply, even if the accompanying residence permit application is not submitted until after 1 January, 2013.

Do I need to adjust the salaries of our highly-skilled migrants annually according to the new wage criterion?

When should I apply the new wage rates?
1. When you employ a highly skilled migrant, a corporate employee or a Blue Card holder, either from another country or from the Netherlands;
2. When a corporate employee from another country is transferred;
3. At the time a residence permit is extended.

Furthermore, you should be sure that during the term of his contract, the salary of your highly-skilled migrant, corporate employee or Blue Card holder does not drop under the salary limit that applied when the request for a residence permit or the Blue Card was submitted (e.g. due to part-time work).

Which highly-skilled migrant falls into which category?
Highly-skilled migrants, 30 years or older, who are beginning employment on or after 1 January, 2013, should meet the wage criterion of €52,010.-

Highly skilled migrants, 29 years old or younger who are beginning employment on or after 1 January, 2013, should meet the wage criterion of €38,141.-

For the highly-skilled migrants who did, or will turn 30 years old during the course of their employment contract, the lower wage criterion will apply as long as they continue working for the same “employer”.
The “employer” here means: the person or legal entity with whom the employee has entered into an employment contract.
For students who graduate in the Netherlands and find employment as highly-skilled migrants within a year of completing their studies, there is an extra low wage criterion, regardless of their age. This criterion is set at €27,336.- for 2013 and will remain valid even if they change employers.

Scientific researchers and doctors in training to be specialists
Scientific researchers and doctors in training to be specialists may start employment as highly-skilled migrants but do not have to meet a wage criterion other than the general subsistence requirement from the Immigration Act. The social assistance benefits for a single person in 2013 will be €1100.89 per month (exclusive of vacation pay).

Corporate employees
When “start employment” and “employer” are mentioned above, what is also meant is: a company that receives a highly-skilled migrant within the confines of a corporate transfer and for that reason is regarded to be a sponsor by the IND.
Applicable to corporate employees who come to work in the Netherlands with a work permit (TWV) on or after 1 January 2013, there is a wage criterion of €52,010.-, which applies to the entire duration of the work permit.

If an employer does not meet the salary criterion, the Inspector from the Ministry of Social Affairs can impose a fine of €12,000.- per highly-skilled migrant, corporate employee or Blue Card holder. An employer, as a sponsor of highly-skilled migrants, is also required to report any changes in salaries to the IND.
