The term “highly skilled migrants” refers to highly educated persons with a non-European Union / European Economic Area (EU / EEA) nationality.
In order to employ highly skilled migrants, your organization must be a recognized sponsor by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND). This procedure is rather expensive, complex and time-consuming.
