Amsterdam Welcoming Message
- The city of Amsterdam is home to over 100,000 citizens with an EU nationality other than Dutch. The city welcomes EU mobile citizens from all over Europe and tries to provide the right infrastructure to help them participate in society and to help them fulfill their potential, through education, work, and an active social life.
- IN Amsterdam (formerly Expatcenter Amsterdam) provides a one-stop-shop service for international newcomers in the Amsterdam Area. We serve companies and their highly skilled migrant employees, scientific researchers, international entrepreneurs and international graduates. The IN Amsterdam procedure includes immigration elements such as residence and work permits (including the startup visa), registration with the municipality, the 30% tax ruling and many other official matters.
- For EU mobile citizens that speak Polish, Bulgarian, Romanian, or Spanish, there are information brochures made available on topics such as registering at the municipality, using your digiD, health insurance, taxes, housing, labour market and education.
