I know, Micers, very off-topic, but does anyone with US citizenry like I have had any personal experiences obtaining a visa for residency and work? I'm sure the process is a longshot for someone like me---in my late 50s---but it's worth a shot.

Feel free to post or send me a PM if you know of any good visa lawyer or immigration services who are friendly and affordable toward non-EU citizens. And yes, I can imagine with world events as they are, these services may be overwhelmed by more serious cases than mine.

Thanks for your help in advance.

... being too lazy to verify, by answering your question, I've made an educated guess that the conditions are similar in the Netherlands as they are in Germany; if I'm wrong, my apologies.

You can get a student visa if you are able to enroll in a school or university, or you can find an employer that sponsors your visa application as your professional expertise is unique and would better the economy (not as hard as it sounds if your sponsor is a large recognized company).

In Germany, the magic duration is something like 7 years of continuous employment residence to be entitled to permanent residency.

A more straight forward method is to honestly fall in love with and merry a woman of the EU - Romanians and Bulgarians are in abundance in A'dam, for example - you know where ;-) --- I'm not really being serious.

Sans success with any of the above options, my understanding is that Americans are permitted to reside in the EU for 90 days at a time without a visa (with a 90 day intermission between each stay).

... Eric
