For employers

Lifeport Welcome Center helps companies in Arnhem-Nijmegen area that want to bring international, highly-skilled migrants to work and live in this region. If you want to hire someone from outside of the Netherlands, then the accelerated procedures of Lifeport Welcome Center can make this much easier for you. With just one stop at Lifeport Welcome Center, your employee (and thus you) will save both time and effort.

Via the regular process, it could take between one and six weeks after your employee arrives in the Netherlands to complete the entire procedure. At Lifeport Welcome Center, all the formalities can be arranged in one day. This means that after visiting Lifeport Welcome Center, your employee will be immediately allowed to work. Your employee does not have to go to the IND office in 's-Hertogenbosch or Zwolle and then also to a local municipality. Both the highly skilled employee residence permit (from the IND) and the registration in the Personal Records Database (at the Municipality) can be accomplished at one address at Lifeport Welcome Center in Nijmegen.

Hospitality services, global mobility and dual career & family support

In addition, at the service and information desk we will answer all questions that your employee has regarding practical and social issues, and receive referrals to a reliable network of private service partners. These can be questions such as how to import a car or pet or where to find career help for a spouse, or referrals to Dutch language schools, sports clubs, legal assistance, etc. This invaluable reference desk saves a lot of work for your Human Resources department.
