Salary requirement knowledge migrant 2016
The required salary for knowledge migrants/blue card holders for 2016 are:
- knowledge migrant of 30 years or older: € 4,240 gross per month excluding holiday allowance
- knowledge migrant younger than 30 years: € 3,108 gross per month excluding holiday allowance
- knowledge migrant who graduated at an institution for higher education or university in the Netherlands less than 1 year before starting a job: € 3,108 gross per month excluding holiday allowance.
- holder of a European Blue Card: € 4,968 gross per month excluding holiday allowance.
As you can see a minimum gross salary per month is required, not a minimum gross salary per year. If it turns out that during a couple of months the salary stays below the required level, the IND (Dutch Immigration Service) can start asking questions and decide that the salary is not high enough to remain qualified as knowledge migrant.
