Employees who wish to come to work as Highly Skilled Migrants or holder of an European Blue Card in the Netherlands are required to earn a certain minimum gross annual income. This gross annual income is referred to as the income requirement. Employees who perform scientific research or who are doctors in training to become specialists are not required to satisfy this requirement. Such employees have to satisfy the provisions of the Minimum Wage Act. These requirements can be found at www.ind.nl.
Effective as of 1 January, the income requirement for Highly Skilled Migrants will be reviewed annually by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment on the basis of the most recent index figure for Collective Labour Agreement wages, published by Netherlands Statistics.
