The immigration authorities in the Netherlands have announced that they will be conducting immigration inspections at recognised sponsor companies throughout 2018.  Companies will be selected at random and notice will be given, by way of scheduled appointments. The focus of the inspections will be compliance. Failing an inspection, by reason of non-compliance, could lead to sanctions. 

Compliance obligations currently required Recognised Sponsors to notify the Dutch Immigration Authority of relevant changes to both their company and migrant workers.  The notification requirements include change of business address, change of structure, hiring or terminating employment and reduction in employees’ salaries.
