Since the end of 2016 a new residence permit for intra-company transfer exists on grounds of Directive 2014/66/EU. This concerns executives, specialists, or trainees. Many conditions are attached to this residence permit, including the nature of the job and transfer, the duration of the transfer, the conditions of employment, and the nature of the group of companies. The main benefit of this residence permit is that no work permit (TWV) is required.

This residence permit can be granted for a maximum of 3 years (executives and specialists) or 1 year and expands the possibilities to temporarily work in another EU Member State while maintaining this residence permit.

As an employer or employee it is important to get good advice on this new immigration option.
