That’s easy. You contact the people at the Rotterdam Expat Centre. They are familiar with all requirements and procedures that come with you wanting to settle in Rotterdam. They know what questions you might have and what challenges you face. They will help you with the immigration procedure with the IND (Immigration and Naturalisation Service), they can advise you on things like taxes, housing, opening a bank account, healthcare, education and careers. Their services for expats are free, tailored to your specific needs and also include your spouse and children.

Especially for new expats coming to Rotterdam the Rotterdam Expat Centre organizes International Welcome Events, either in the form of a physical get together or – as is the case in 2020 – in the form of digital/virtual meetings. Like our annual Rotterdam Expat Welcome Event, when we warmly welcome all recently arrived expats to our city, help them with introductions to each other and into local communities and networks. Additionally, every month a special Talent Night is organized by Venture Café, focusing on opportunities and challenges in the field of talent in the city, with a break-out session especially for spouses. These and other events will help you settle, feel at home, meet other expats and share your experiences living and working in Rotterdam. Whether you are thinking about moving to the Netherlands and looking for a new place you can call home, or if you have already started planning your career and life in Rotterdam, the people of Rotterdam Expat Centre would love to meet and help you.
