• The start-up entrepreneur must have significant savings or another source of income for at least a full year. • The start-up entrepreneur must have a contract with a start-up facilitator having a sound track record. Most major start-up incubators in the Netherlands are accepted. • After one year, permit must be changed into a regular entrepreneur residence permit. This may be done with a statement of good entrepreneurship obtained from start-up facilitator. Facilitators set their own benchmarks for this. INDEPENDENT PERMITS • A non-EU national who has a residence permit based on a relationship (a Dutch or legally resident partner or parent, for example) can apply for a permit in his or her own right after five years of holding a Dutch permit. • Dependent children can apply for an independent residence permit after one year of legal stay based on a family residence permit. • Specific, but restrictive policies facilitate continued stay of ex-partners in case of domestic violence or the threat of violence.

• Continued stay in case of divorce before the five-year term is usually possible if there are children having the Dutch or an EU nationality. • Permanent residence permit • Permanent and unconditional residence permit. After five years of uninterrupted legal stay, this permit can be issued. • Applicant must have the Civic Integration Diploma (Inburgeringsdiploma), even if prior residence was based on work. • Applicant must show having sufficient and durable means of support. • Beware of “residence gaps”, meaning a “gap” between the expiry date of old residence permit and starting date of the new permit. A “residence gap” causes the loss of all accrued time; you basically have to start counting five years from zero. • EU/EEA/Swiss citizens can obtain permanent status after five years too. The rules here are considerably less strict. • Residency costs (2019) • For all applications the IND charges costs. The exact figures are subject to frequent change. Please refer to www.ind.nl/en/pages/costs.aspx for details. • Identification • All residents over the age of 14 must carry an ID that shows their residence status (for EU/EEA nationals, a passport).
