Orientation year permit
The Netherlands attaches great importance to giving highly skilled migrants the opportunity and time they need to find a job in the Netherlands after completing their studies.
The orientation year permit allows recent graduates from non-EU countries and scientific researchers to stay in or come to the Netherlands for a period of up to twelve months.
During this one-year period, the graduate can work in any type of job. An application for work as a highly skilled migrant should be submitted before the end of the year.
