International Graduates in the Netherlands get Longer Period to Look for a Job at Lower Salary
The Dutch government has announced it will extend the lower salary criteria for recent international graduates from 1 year to 3 years. This means, they will have a longer period to look for a job at a lower salary. Under normal circumstances, highly skilled workers younger than 30 years must earn a gross salary of at least €3 381 to obtain a residence permit, but for recent graduates looking for a job, the minimum salary is €2 423 during their search year (12 months). This period will now be extended to 3 years.
