Living and working in the Netherlands

Moving to the Netherlands may be a big step that asks a lot of work on your part. However, it will also 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 takes quite some work. We want to help you organize everything to make sure you have a smooth start of your career. Within Yacht, we have a team that specializes in the onboarding of expats, such as EU professionals and highly skilled migrants: Yacht Expat Services.

The Yacht Expat Services offer you a relocation package to support you during the move. Depending on your situation and needs we will fully supervise your immigration process. This means: housing, tickets and transfers. We will apply for your permit and if needed for your partner and family too. We’ll inform you about work, health care, health insurance and life in general in the Netherlands. We will also join you to your appointments with the expat center and the bank. Finally we will connect you to a specialized agency that can help you with the 30% ruling application: a reimbursement ruling for highly skilled immigrants.

For more information about Yacht Expat Services, see our brochure.

For other relevant information see the Dutch Tax office. You can find more information about relocating to and working in the Netherlands on the following official websites: IN Amsterdam. Holland Expat Center South and Expat Holland.
