Measure highly skilled migrants extended: Working temporarily without a residence document

An interesting excerpt from the latest IND newsletter:

The temporary measure for highly skilled migrants has been extended. This means that in many cases a highly skilled migrant may start working for a maximum of 4 months without a residence card or sticker. The ‘beschikking’/confirmation is the proof of work authorisation. This flexibility does not apply to employees with the following residence permits: Intra Corporate Transferee (ICT), European Blue Card and Scientific Researcher. These employees do need a visa sticker to work while waiting for their residence document.

The above-mentioned temporary measure is the case for all highly skilled migrants who do not need a provisional residence permit (i.e., the MVV visa sticker) to travel to the Netherlands. For example for highly skilled migrants from the USA, UK or Australia.
