Working and living in the Netherlands – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in the Netherlands requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Dutch expat life. Living abroad in the Netherlands raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to the Netherlands?ʺ, ʺWhat are the most important ways of professional networking in Amsterdam and The Hague?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Amsterdam should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Dutch municipality in The Hague?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Netherlands is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for the Netherlands aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in the Netherlands. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from local organisations and companies, to travel & accommodation or culture and sights, up to housing & household. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhere can I buy decent second-hand bikes for my kids?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Netherlands. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on live in Norway or living in Sweden.
