Expat Services

Do you want to second one of your specialists to a location abroad or do you want to hire a foreign specialist? How does that work? In which country do you have to pay tax? Which permits and insurances are required? We can help you with these questions and make this process as pleasant and easy as possible for everyone

Expat Services

Approba offers a number of HR services for expats. The employee needs a work permit if he / she is from a country outside the European Union and starts working in the Netherlands. In most cases, a permit is applied through the Dutch “Highly Skilled Migration Procedure”. Approba is a recognized sponsor of the Dutch immigration and naturalization authorities. This means that it is often possible for a highly skilled migrant to come to the Netherlands within a short period. Our expat services provide support, take over the entire process or provide advice on practical matters that are important for immigration. It is clear that a work permit and residence permit is not the only step to be taken. On a personal level, we arrange a carefree move for the expat and his / her family. At a professional level, we provide support with successful integration into an intercultural working environment.

Splendid to arrive alone in a foreign country and feel the assault of difference.

Here they are all along, busy with living; they don’t talk or look like me. The rhythm of their day is entirely different; I am foreign.
