Internationalization becomes increasingly important to businesses in order to cope with competitors. Especially for the (larger) SMEs, the availability of highly skilled international employees plays a significant role.

Recognised sponsors such as Exterus support various consultancy services and assist in obtaining all the required documents. Exterus ensures full support of both employer and employee.
