I am currently living in Holland on a student residence permit, I have a job and work permit, have lived here for two years, and together with two Dutch contacts, we are starting a wholesale company, importing from China. The company is launching in June, but I am in a bit of a pickle with what to do with residence permits. I need to renew my student permit soon. Aside from that, can I be employed by my own company (it's B.V.) with my current status, or can it sponsor me as an employee? As would be assumed, Dutch contacts are of no help with this. Hoping to hear opinions about this and hopefully experiences!
