Work Permits
Although contractors have to apply for a work permit themselves, we can offer advice and help with all the documentation needed. Non-EU nationals can apply for a work permit as a skilled worker if: You have completed higher education, eg as an engineer or a nurse or you have completed vocational training, eg as a joiner or health worker. However, obtaining a work and residence permit can depend on a person’s situation, for example, different rules apply to students and highly educated students. On the site of the UDI you can easily get an overview of what applies to your situation:
