- Question from Non-EU freelancers with a temporary (not permanent) residence permit
We get questions from artists who are Non-EU freelancers with a temporary (not permanent) residence permit. They wonder what their rights are. On the back side of their Dutch ID card provided by IND, it reads "Een beroep op algemene middelen kan gevolgen hebben voor het verblijfsrecht." So are they fully qualified to apply for the financial support for zzp'ers or not?

Answer by a law firm specialized in immigration
People with a residence permit as an entrepreneur, a national of the European Union*, or any other non-permanent residence permit, are advised NOT TO apply for temporary financial support as it could jeopardize their legal residence.

Answer by AHK (Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten)
Applying for the option for exceptional benefits for freelancers who work in the Netherlands can have immediate visum implications for non EU students, so please advise them not to if they ask!
