Relocation

We look forward to guiding you through your international relocation experience. Our Dutch LIFE program will make your relocation easy and understandable.

Our support starts from the moment you decide to relocate to The Netherlands and continues until you are comfortably settled in your new home and its surroundings. We are on-call even after your arrival so you will always have someone to turn to. Our relocation plan, Dutch LIFE, is designed to give you the most relevant information in a logical way. This will ensure you know what to expect during each phase of your personal relocation.

Expat Help also helped us with the residence permit application of my wife recently. Everything was perfect, on time and extremely satisfactory. I was very happy with my experiences with Expat Help and definitely recommend it to all.
