Petra van Ligten

I have extensive experience in the immigration- and relocation field. In 2005, I started working for Settle Service and it has never been boring! Before this, I worked for a couple of years for the IND (Dutch Immigration authority) as a decision officer. The IND taught me the Immigration laws and regulations and how to apply. At Settle Service, I developed my personal skills and how to combine law with practice. In the past years, I have built up many sustainable relationships with clients, employees, IND, Employment authority (UWV), Dutch Tax authority (30% ruling), Expatcenters, town halls, and Dutch representatives abroad.
I handle all kinds of work- and residence permits, advise on legalization procedures and requirements, and I am also specialized in the 30% tax ruling regulation. I consider making the procedure and expectations clear throughout the process as one of the most important aspects in my line of work. All that is necessary to ensure a good start for the employee (and dependents). And not to forget, to make sure that the employer is compliant with the immigration rules at all times. Flexibility is essential and making sure that everything takes place within the rules of the law! I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail. Over the years, I experienced that working together with colleagues and the will to continue learning and doing what you like within your professional field, is one of the most important ingredients for growth and pleasure in my work.
