The DAFT requires that the company in question is registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (Trade Register) and that a minimal capital investment of 4,500 euros is injected and maintained on the company’s Dutch business bank account for the entire duration of the DAFT permit. DAFT permits are issued for a period of two years and are renewable. Partners and children are able to join the American entrepreneur who is granted residency rights under DAFT. After a an uninterrupted stay of 5 years in the Netherlands with a valid residence permit, you are eligible for permanent residency rights if you pass the (relatively easy) civic integration exam.
We have a lot of experience with assisting American citizens in acquiring a DAFT residence permit. We can guide you through the entire process – from registering your company with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce and opening a business bank account, to preparing and submitting your successful DAFT application to the immigration authorities.
