Application to work as a highly skilled migrant and for the European Blue Card

Salary criteria 2022

Highly skilled migrants 30 years or older € 4,840.00 gross per month
Highly skilled migrants younger than 30 years € 3,549.00 gross per month
Reduced salary criterion € 2,543.00 gross per month
​European Blue Card € 5,670.00 gross per month

 

You will find the correct criterion for a highly skilled migrant in this tabel:

The age-dependent salary criterion applies for as long as the highly skilled migrant continues working for one and the same employer, even after becoming 30 years old. Is the highly skilled migrant going to work for another employer? Then the new employer should pay the salary criterion that applies for the age of the highly skilled migrant at that moment.
This doest not apply to the highly skilled migrant who falls under the reduced salary criterion. The reduced salary criterion is not age-dependent and remains in effect when the highly skilled migrant changes employers.

Reduced salary criterion

The reduced salary criterion applies in the following 3 situations:

  1. The employer applies for the residence permit for highly skilled migrant during or directly after the orientation year for highly educated persons.
  2. The highly skilled worker currently no longer has a residence permit for the orientation year for highly educated persons but previously had this permit. The employer applies for the residence permit for highly skilled migrant within 3 years of the graduation date,  the date on which the doctorate was awarded, or the date on which the residence permit for scientific research expired.
  3. The highly skilled worker never had a residence permit for the orientation year for highly educated persons, but does meet the conditions for this residence purpose. The employer applies for the residence permit for highly skilled migrant within 3 years of the graduation date,  the date on which the doctorate was awarded, or the date on which the residence permit for scientific research expired.

What may be included in the salary criterion?

The IND counts the reimbursements of expenses and fixed allowances (such as a thirteenth month) in the salary criterion. For this the following conditions apply: 

  • The reimbursements and allowances are in the contract. 
  • The employer transfers the reimbursements and allowances each month to a bank account in name of the highly skilled migrant or holder of the European blue card. Each month the payment covers a period of a maximum of 1 month.

The following pay elements are not included in the salary criterion:

  • Vacation allowance.
  • The value of payment made in kind.
  • Uncertain, non-regular pay elements (for example overtime allowances, tips and payments from funds).
