Why should highly skilled migrants learn Dutch?

Mastering the Dutch language is sometimes mandatory and has important advantages:

Meeting legal requirements

To work in the healthcare sector, registration in the BIG-register is mandatory. In order to do this, from January 1, 2024, healthcare workers must obtain a language certificate. To obtain the language certificate, candidates must demonstrate a level of B1 (MBO nurses), B2 (HBO nurses), or B2+ (academics).

Complying with employer requirements

The employer may impose requirements on the language skills of the employee. Often Dutch is the working language within an organization and it is desired that everyone can use it well. Knowledge of the language and work culture is important to function well in the workplace and to feel at home in the Netherlands.
