To travel to the Netherlands, you need a provisional residence permit (mvv). The mvv is a sticker that the Dutch representation places in the passport. In some cases, you do not need an mvv. You apply for the mvv and the residence permit at the same time. This can be done in 2 ways:
You (to the Dutch representation in your own country or the country of continuous residence) or your employer (applies to the IND in the Netherlands) can submit the application for a GVVA.
Are you only allowed to work with a work permit? And is it not possible to apply for a GVVA? Your employer has to apply for the TWV to UWV. Your employer has to do this at the same time as the application for your residence permit. You cannot do this yourself.
For more information on where and how to apply, please check here, or contact your employer as to the procedures to be followed.
Your employer can choose to become a recognised sponsor. This is not obligatory. Recognition as sponsor has various advantages.
Other conditions may apply for Turkish nationals and their family members.
