Expatcenter

The Expatcenter assists highly skilled migrants living or working in Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Almere and Haarlemmermeer. Launched in 2008, it is a pilot project involving the IND (Immigration and Naturalisation Service) and the local Gemeente.

The main aim of the Expatcenter is to help highly skilled migrants and their families to find information and arrange important administrative matters in one appointment.

Expatcenter services include:

  • Assistance applying for a residence permit (VVR) and registering with the municipality (GBA)
  • Issuing registered applicants with a BSN personal number (Burgerservicenummer) by post. The BSN number is required when starting a job, opening a bank account, using the health care system, applying for benefits, buying a car and announcing a change of address
  • Issuing the Certificate of Health (verklaring van geschiktheid) to drivers wanting to exchange their foreign driving licence for a Dutch licence
  • Sales of Amstelveen parking permits

To qualify for the Expatcenter service, the individual or their company must be based in Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Almere or Haarlemmermeer. The employer must also be participating in the special entry procedure for highly skilled migrants.
