In order to make use of the streamlined formality procedures of the International Welcome Center North, the employer must be registered as a recognized sponsor with the IND (Immigration Service). Furthermore, the highly-skilled employee, scientific researcher, orientation year permit, intra-corporate transferee, EU-Blue card holder, or Start-up entrepreneur (and their families) must live in – or work for a company located in – one of the municipalities participating in the IWCN (Assen, Delfzijl, Emmen, Groningen, Heerenveen, Het Hogeland, Leeuwarden, Midden-Groningen, Noordenveld, Smallingerland and Veendam).

For newcomers, the visit will involve meeting an IND representative and a representative from the local Municipality. The employee (and applicable family members) must bring the originals of all the required documents with them to the appointment.
For residents who already have a residence permit and are extending or changing their purpose of stay, the visit will involve only meeting an IND representative, since residents have previously received their BSNs from the Municipality.
