Living and working in the Netherlands

Moving to the Netherlands may be a big step that requires considerable work on your part. At the same time, it will broaden your experience and provide the perfect opportunity to take your career forwards. The Netherlands is a highly attractive place to live in, with excellent social and cultural facilities for you to enjoy a great life.

Our support

Moving to the Netherlands may be a big move that requires considerable work on your part. But we will help you organize everything. Within Yacht there is a team specialized in onboarding expats (i.e. EU professionals and highly skilled migrants), namely Yacht Expat Services. 
Yacht Expat Services offers you a relocation package to support you in the process. Depending on your situation and needs, Yacht Expat Services will fully supervise your immigration process from housing, tickets and transfers. We will apply for your permit (and if desired also the permit of your partner and/or family) and we will inform you about working and living in the Netherlands, health care in the Netherlands and health insurance. We will also accompany you to appointments at the expat center and the bank. Last but not least we will bring you in contact with a specialized agency that can help you with the 30% ruling application, a reimbursement ruling for highly skilled migrants.
