I am a non-EEA citizen finishing my PhD soon in France and have an offer to join a company in the Netherlands.
My future Dutch employer informed me that I don't need to apply for a Dutch visa given that I am a resident of a Schengen country. They will apply for a residence permit on my behalf. If the application is accepted, my future employer will book an appointment for me and I will be able to travel to the Netherlands to finalize the application and get my passport stamped which will allow me to work until my residence card is issued.
While my future employer applies for the residence permit I might be outside France and the Schengen area. My question is: if the Dutch authorities accept the application submitted by my future employer (I will be outside France by then), will my French residence permit be invalidated? Will I be able to reenter the Schengen area?
