Expat Center Amsterdam

Expat Center Amsterdam

The Expatcenter opened in June 2008 and was one of the first schemes of its kind in the Netherlands to cut the red tape for internationals and assist in the process of settling in.

After a successful few years, the Expatcenter still has its sights set on expanding services and building bridges for Amsterdam’s international community.

The cities of Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Almere and Haarlemmermeer, together with the Immigration and Naturalisation Services (IND), have joined forces to create the Expatcenter. The Expatcenter, situated in the World Trade Center in Amsterdam Zuid, provides a one-stop-shop service for highly-skilled migrants.

Successful venture
The Expatcenter provides a one-stop-shop service for international companies and their highly skilled migrant employees. The Expatcenter is a joint initiative of the cities of Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Almere and Haarlemmermeer, along with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND).

The Amsterdam Expatcenter was the first of its kind in the Netherlands, and was created to better meet the needs of international companies in the Amsterdam area. Since its opening in 2008, the center has proved to be very successful with over 850 international companies making use of the streamlined procedures and more than 10,000 expats have visited the office at the WTC for registration.

The collective efforts have paid off; in a recent survey, companies ranked the services provided by the Expatcenter at 8.7 out of 10. This is a notable improvement from the 5 out of 10 ranking given to the former procedure.

The Expatdesk Utrecht has been established in 2012 by a group of companies in Utrecht specialized in providing services to expats and international companies. Unlike other regions Utrecht did not yet have an expatdesk. This is why already in 2009 the first plans were created to form an expatdesk. The Expatdesk Utrecht is looking forward to work with the municipality of Utrecht and the Province of Utrecht to expand the services which can be provided.

The Expatdesk Utrecht aims to be a meeting place for individual expats and international companies where they can find answers to their questions and assistance with getting around in Utrecht.

The Expatdesk Utrecht is a foundation, in the board of the foundation the founding partners are represented. The daily tasks are handled by the chairman and the secretary of the board.
