Life as an expat can be scary, but not in the Netherlands and specifically not in Rotterdam. To help you get settled in the Netherlands and Rotterdam specifically, we have gathered some useful expat information for you.
Rotterdam Expat Centre
The Rotterdam Expat Centre is pleased to welcome you as a new citizen and wants to make sure you feel at home. There are a few essentials that you need to arrange upon your arrival in Rotterdam in order to get comfortably settled. This may include help with local or international education, healthcare, housing, taxes and careers.
In addition, the Rotterdam Expat Centre can assist highly skilled migrants with the entire immigration procedure with the IND (Immigration and Naturalisation Service) and the registration process on your behalf.
I Am Expat
I Am Expat is another useful site for information from official issues, for example permits, health care and insurances to housing, education and lifestyle. The site also gives background information about life in general in the Netherlands.
A good place to ask questions regarding moving to and living in the Netherlands is ACCESS. ACCESS is a non-profit organization that is established by expats that missed having a place they could go to with questions and for advice.
