As of 2015, the Dutch startup visa makes it possible for ambitious entrepreneurs to apply for a temporary residence permit for the Netherlands. The so-called residence permit ‘scheme for start-ups’ affords ambitious entrepreneurs one year to launch an innovative business. A prerequisite is that this start-up must be guided by an experienced mentor (facilitator) that is based in the Netherlands.

One year after the launch we are proud to show you a brief overview of the applications in 2015.

More information on the residence permit on the site of the IND
