The appeal of the Netherlands to knowledge migrants

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The aim of the study was to obtain insight into how the immigration policy can make the Netherlands (more) attractive to highly skilled migrants and more particularly how the IND and other parties involved can improve services to these migrants. The study provides insight into the reasons why highly skilled migrants choose the Netherlands and their experiences with Dutch entry policy and services. By highly skilled migrants, we mean all highly qualified workers from outside the EU/EEA who are working in the Netherlands as knowledge migrants.
Besides providing insight into the choices and experiences of highly skilled migrants, this study formulates concrete starting points for improving services to this group of migrants. This could ul-timately boost the appeal of the Netherlands as a host and career country.
