Could you make it in the Netherlands as an entrepreneur? In 2015 the Dutch government brought in new regulations to help ambitious businesspeople from non-EU countries. A one-year ‘start-up’ residency permit has been specially designed to help people like you in the Netherlands. As part of the scheme, all entrepreneurs are required to have a mentor, or ‘facilitator’ on-board and for their start-up to offer something innovative in the Dutch market.
Here are the steps to follow when you discover your Residence Permit is lost or stolen:
When you first get your Residence Permit, always make a copy (paper or digital) and keep it safe. If you save the front and back image on your phone, you can easily find your V-number to put on a police report.
