Moving... outside of USA (Denmark) by 2017

    27M, BS + 29M, AAS

    We would like to move to the Netherlands by 2017, but my main concern is that my partner would not be eligible for a job.

    I have a BS and would be applying for a job at somewhere without issue. I am not concerned about my job opportunities. However, my partner does not yet have a BA (only an AAS), so I'm not sure what I can do to help him. Would we be rejected for Danish residency? Anyone know what's up with Danish residency?

    If I could get some serious replies, it'd be most appreciated.

    Most citizenship for countries requires at least a working member. Having some higher education usually helps a lot because brain drain.

    Just schedule a call with the embassy and get all the info. Best you can do is prepare yourself for 2 years and have all your ducks in a row. Embassies process paperwork efficiently when you have 120% of all things.

    Should always be a 1800 number.

    Googled it because I'm Dutch, this was from a guy who wanted his GF to come over. A couple of guys stated this pretty much contains anything you'd need: https://ind.nl/en . I suppose visiting a Dutch embassy wouldn't hurt to be sure though.

    Also since you're apparently already a EU citizen I think there'd be even less hurdles to go through. Half the company I work with is Polish, all thanks to these wonderful ''open borders'' within the EU.

    My wife has 2 Masters and it's been a huge pain in the ass for her to immigrate to the USA from Slovenia. She's told me the Dutch are more welcoming but also slightly unwelcoming in some regards.
    I think from talking to her about the job situation in Europe, that it's getting a little rough. She said it's not easy.
