Regulation work permits Asian chefs extended

On 15 April, the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment announced by means of a letter to the house of representatives that from 1 October 2019 it will remain possible for the Asian restaurant industry to apply for TWV permits for chefs outside the European Union on the basis of the current ministerial regulation to work in the Netherlands. The current ministerial regulation would expire after 30 September 2019, but because the Minister acknowledges that there is still a shortage in the labor market for Asian restaurants, he has therefore taken this decision.

The conditions are, however, slightly adjusted. For example, the vacancy must be placed with the UWV for at least 3 weeks.
