Hallo, and a very warm welcome to our community of expatriates in Utrecht! InterNations is a network for expats around the globe to socialize, network, and help each other out while living and working abroad. If you want to take the step to move to Utrecht, you're bound to have plenty of questions you'll need answering before you decide or set things in motion. You may be in Utrecht already but have further questions about living in the city, such as "how do I obtain medical insurance if I moved to Utrecht from outside the EU?" or "what is the cost of living in Utrecht compared to Amsterdam?". Whatever your query, our group members are knowledgeable and experienced and are sure to be happy to help you as you look to make the most of your life in the Netherlands.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world.

Almost nobody visiting Utrecht could fail to be moved by its picturesque, almost quaint facades. As with many Dutch cities, there are plenty of canals, with the town almost built on two levels. The city isn't quite as sleepy as it might seem at first, however — its student population is the largest in the Netherlands, which ensures it also has a diverse community and vibrant nightlife. Academia attracts many expatriates, but the city is also the hub of several industries, including the Dutch rail system and a significant banking sector. Whatever it is that draws you to Utrecht, you can be sure to find plenty more that will make you want to stay.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Jeddah or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Our members here at InterNations are all by approval only, ensuring that your interactions with the group will see you get the best and friendliest advice possible. Once you've joined, taken part in a few discussions, and maybe had some of your own questions answered, there's always the opportunity to network offline, too. Through our activity groups in Utrecht, members have the change to get-together at regular events for everything from fine dining to outdoor adventures. Our larger official events also draw in a wider community of expats and can be great opportunities to network for business or pleasure — so make sure you attend!
