Complex and extensive obligations of a recognised sponsor
We understand the complexity of Dutch immigration law and regulations and the time-consuming administrative burden a recognised sponsor faces in the execution of its duties.
A recognised sponsor has to deal with a large number of variables and derogation rules which are dependent on the receipt of the correct data and details. The duties of the recognised sponsor vary from being charged with the strenuous execution and application of complex laws and regulations when assessing and submitting residence application forms for its students and/or employees, to having to comply with a couple of statutory obligations vis-à-vis the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (in Dutch: Immigratie en Naturalisatiedienst: “IND”). The latter refer to the obligation to provide information to the IND, the duty to keep and retain records relating to the applications and the duty of care, i.e. having to ensure a careful recruitment and selection of employees and having to inform them of their rights and obligations under Dutch migration law.
As a recognised sponsor remains responsible for students and/or employees during the entire period of their study, internship or employment in the Netherlands (plus 5 years thereafter), it has to carefully monitor the life cycle of their dossiers and carry out (annual) mandatory actions and controls. Our VisaCare expertsystem supports a recognised sponsor in the execution of all its duties and provides all the expertise necessary for fulfilling its legal obligations. Therefore our system does not only significantly reduce the time-consuming administrative burden, but also ensures compliance with Dutch immigration laws and regulations.
VisaCare reduces complexity
VisaCare is an expert system which allows (complex) bureaucratic processes to be optimally automated. All applicable laws and regulations can be processed and made functional.
The system indicates when which laws and regulations are applicable, what procedures should be followed and what actions should be taken. Every international (employee/ student) will be fully informed, customized, instructed and guided through the procedural steps.
The accredited sponsor as well as the international is real-time informed of actions to be taken and always knows exactly what needs to be done, by whom and for whom. In addition, the communication flows with the international employee or student are streamlined and linked to their files. It is possible at any time to search for all data contained in the system and to generate charts. The VisaCare expert system provides optimal overview and control and creates peace within your organization. This way your organization is not only prepared for growth, but has also fully secured the laws and regulations. The new major European privacy legislation will no longer be a problem.
With VisaCare you are already sure that you are meeting all the new legal requirements in this area.
A foreign student in the Netherlands needs a residence permit (with the exeption of students originating from the European Union, the European Economic Area and Switserland). The responsibility for the residence permit application lies with the chosen educational institution.
Visacare is certified to automatically submit all required data and documents. Therewith is it possible to create the possibility to digitally submit the application to the IND with just one push of a button. Completing applications, keeping up with messages and processing decisions, from the first request up to the final decision of the IND to grant the permit (including deregistration), it’s all completely supported.
Knowledge Platform Immigration
In 2019 we will introduce the online Knowledge Platform Immigration for and with users of VisaCare. This platform will be used to share and discuss topical implementation issues in terms of immigration law. With the exchange of best practices we will identify common bottlenecks in the implementation of laws and regulations and its translation towards the VisaCare application. Reaching a solution and exchanging point of views, will allow us to create reference material and develop a valuable knowledge database.

We would be delighted to discuss with you the many possibilities VisaCare has to offer your organisation.
