Everyone travelling to the Netherlands and staying here must demonstrate that he/she has sufficient financial means to finance his/her stay. Each application (MVV/VVR) will therefore also be assessed on sufficient financial means. If the financial means requirement is not met, the application will CERTAINLY be rejected.
The level of the amounts is assessed against the substance level (the minimum wage) and also depends on the purpose of the stay (e.g. study or work) and whether or not the family is also taken along. On the IND site you can find a list of these financial criteria.
Foreign staff members who in the context of academic research have been appointed to the UT, with a UFO job code starting with an ‘01’ , do not need a TWV (temporary residence permit), for they fall under the knowledge migrants scheme.
In most cases foreign staff members who are not employed by the UT must earn a salary that is equal to the gross minimum wage.
Depending on the purpose for which an alien visits the UT, he is to demonstrate that he has sufficient financial means. In most cases this will be related to the financial criteria of the IND.
