Part-time/Online Job: Can I find an online part-time job in the Netherlands? Due to COVID-19, I am not able to travel to the Netherlands.
Most of the part-time jobs in NL require you to be physically in NL, so it is nearly impossible to find an online part-time job.
Suggestion: It is highly unlikely that you will be able to find an online part-time job in the Netherlands. Most jobs require you to be physically present in the Netherlands. Furthermore, to be able to work in the Netherlands, you need a residence permit and/or a work permit (TWV). If you are a new student from a non-EU country, you would not have your resident permit card, and BSN (Social Security No.) yet until you arrive in the Netherlands. These two are prerequisites for being employed in the Netherlands. You can find more details from the IND website: https://ind.nl/en/work
