Working in the European Union

On 1 May 2007, the Netherlands opened its borders to all professional craftsmen from countries that had entered the European Union in 2004.

What does this mean for employers?

Employers are not required to request work permits for our German, Polish, Slovak, Czech, Spanish and Romanian craftsmen. This also applies for those from countries such as Portugal, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Slovenia.

Foreign staff via Larex

European craftsmen from countries such as Germany, Spain, Romania, Portugal, Poland, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic are now able to work under the same conditions as craftsmen from the Netherlands. Any of the professional staff that we provide can work freely on projects for your company. Our recruiters in the Netherlands speak multiple languages, some of whom speak German, Polish, Slovak, Czech, Romanian and Spanish natively.
