General conditions recognised sponsors

You apply for recognition as sponsor. There are a number of general conditions that apply to all organisations.

Your organisation has to meet the following conditions:

  • Your organisation is listed in the Commercial Register in the Netherlands. This is not needed if the Commercial Registers Act 2007 does not require this.
    • Is your organisation an au pair agency located in an EU/EEA Member State? Then your au pair agency is registered in the commercial register of this Member State. This is not required when registration in the commercial register is not necessary or possible.
  • The continuity and solvency of the organisation is sufficiently guaranteed. To assess this, the IND may seek advice from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). RVO makes use of a points-based system to assess the continuity and solvency.
  • Your organisation may not be bankrupt. Nor may there be a suspension of payment.
  • Your organisation, the directors and other natural persons/legal entities involved in your organisation are reliable. This is in any event not the case when:
    • your organisation or the natural persons/legal entities involved in your organisation have become bankrupt in the 3 years prior to the application for recognition;
    • your organisation has received a tax negligence penalty in the 4 years prior to the application for recognition;
    • your organisation has received 3 or more penalties under the Aliens Act, Foreign Nationals (Employment) Act or Minimum Wage and Minimum Holiday Allowance Act in the 3 years prior to the application for recognition.
    • The recognition of your organisation has been revoked in the 5 years prior to this application.
  • Your organisation meets the Code of Conduct that applies to that organisation. For example, an organisation in job placement or that provide manpower, should be registered with the Stichting Normering Arbeid (Association Labour Standards).
