Modern Migration (MoMi) Policy

Immigration laws

Erasmus University Rotterdam is the immigration sponsor for all non-EU nationals coming to The Netherlands for more than 90 days. EUR will apply for a residence permit on your behalf, so that you  will be able to undertake research work for (or on the campus of) our university. 

You, as the holder of a Dutch residence permit, will have certain rights AND obligations according to MoMi Policy. Upon arrival you will have a meeting with HR International, and be asked to sign a MoMi  consent form, to make you fully aware of the responsibilities you have as the holder of a permit. This form will contain amongst others clauses about 
- registration with the city council, 
- having sufficient financial means, 
- being properly insured for medical costs and liability, 
- notify HR of any changes in your personal situation,
- travelling abroad for any period over 6 months, 
- timely action before expiry date of your passport, permit, etcetera. 

Failing to adhere to these rules and regulations could jeopardize your residence and work in The Netherlands. HR and you will of course co-operate closely in order to avoid any trouble.  

EC 2016/801

Meanwhile for researchers a new European Directive has come into place per 23 May 2018: EC 2016/801. This is relevant for both incoming new non-EU researchers, and for current non-EU researchers at EUR already holding a Dutch residence permit. The main element is that intra-EU mobility is made easier: if you -temporarily- want to do part of your research in another EU member state, you may not need to undergo a full immigration procedure. It might suffice to have your Dutch HR department notifying the Dutch Immigration Service. 
 

Under permanent construction

As the Directive is still quite new, and by 23 May 2018 has only been implemented by the Netherlands, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg and Portugal, this page is under permanent construction. 
UK, Ireland and Denmark do NOT participate at all. 
Therefore, please always contact HR International for the latest information: hr.international@eur.nl 

How does it work? Outgoing:

For non-EU researchers at EUR, holding a Dutch residence permit already, it becomes easier to do part of your research in another EU member state where EC 2016/801 is in force as well. If not yet in force, the 'old, regular' rules remain in place. 
 
It is important to inform your HR Department of your plans at least 1,5 months before intended departure. You may still keep your valid Dutch residence permit in case of doing part of your research elsewhere:
 

Short Term Mobility

(> 90 days and < 181 days)
HR International will have to notify IND 30 days before your departure

Long Term Mobility

for > 181 days

- HR International will have to notify IND 30 days before your departure

- You check with your new host institute if the receiving EU member state has additional rules: they will help you.

 

Outgoing Mobility Researchers

How does it work? Incoming:

For all non-EU researchers already holding a residence permit in another EU member state, you may come to EUR in The Netherlands to do part of your research here, if:

 Short Term Mobility

(> 90 days and < 181 days)
you contact your EUR host and EUR HR International at least 1,5 months before arrival: we will need to do paper checks first and then have to notify IND 30 days before your arrival.

Long Term Mobility

for > 181 days

- regular full procedure for a Dutch residence permit

- permit will have an extra line describing you as LTM researcher.
