The Expat Netherlands Chapter welcomes you!

Goededag and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in the Netherlands! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in the Netherlands. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Netherlands: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in the Netherlands?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in The Hague?ʺ or ʺWhere in Amsterdam can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the Netherlands expat community and exploring the Dutch way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional stamppot to celebrating Koninginnedag (Queen's Day).

Next to the Netherlands we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of China Expat. Or you might be interested in our Spain Expat community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the Netherlands Expats Living

With attractions ranging from the quaint clichés of flower fields, canals and windmills to modern urban life in Amsterdam, the Netherlands fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat Netherlands community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Amsterdam and its political as well as economic opportunities, e.g. in the engineering sector. Whether you move to and live in the Netherlands for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
