As of 1 July, Croats are free to engage in work on the labour market
July 9th, 2018
On 1 July 2013 Croatia joined the European Union.
The Netherlands, like many European countries, back then made use of the possibility of postponing the right of workers to freedom of movement. This on account of economic circumstances at the time in our country. A Croat was only allowed to work in the Netherlands when his employer held a valid work permit for persons from outside the European Economic Area. In 2015 this so-called transitional regime was extended for a further three years until 1 July 2018.
