Formalities

Are you new to Holland or thinking about moving to the Netherlands to live, work or study?

The formal part of relocating brings its own set of challenges. We are here to help you understand the Dutch system, the immigration policy, rules and procedures.

Dutch rules & regulations

‘New to Holland.nl.’ is the Dutch government immigration website, featuring information on various ‘formal’ topics such as:

  • Permits and visa
  • Social security
  • Taxes
  • Vehicles
  • Employment
  • Education

Please fill out the New To Holland online profile, and you will be re-directed to the Dutch government immigration website.
