Citizens of Bulgaria and Romania are not able to work in the Netherlands free of restrictions. In most cases, an employer still needs to ask the Dutch employment Authorities (CWI) for a tewerkstellingsvergunning (right to work) for such a candidate. This is a complex procedure, since the employer needs to prove that there is no Dutch citizen sufficiently qualified for the vacancy. For more information, see below “Non EU-citizens”.
– now people will maybe understand why I sometimes feel frustrated that after 3 months of trials I still haven’t got a working permit. Talk about discrimination 🙂 L.O.L. God save us from the Eastern menace ;P
