Local Support

“Relocating to another country is exciting & challenging, as there is much to organise.”

You will have to rebuilt your professional and personal life. Bringing over a partner and/or family might cause extra concerns, as you are looking to ensure they settle easily into their new surroundings.

Upon arrival many relocation tasks need to be completed, incl. registration forms for authorities, utilities, banks and insurances. You will also have to apply for local health care and -if children are involved- find a good school.

Amstel Expats local support packages are ideally suited to help you with such issues and queries. READ MORE…

Learn Dutch

“Learning Dutch is fun & using Dutch in practice enriches your local life.”

Since almost everybody speaks English, many internationals never get round to taking Dutch language lessons. At first, this might not seem important, but over time the inability to communicate in Dutch is likely to undermine your self-confidence and sense of belonging, as it makes it more difficult to maintain local relationships both privately as well as professionally, e.g. having an informal chat with your colleagues at the coffee machine.

Boost Your Dutch courses are specially developed to help internationals overcome the hurdles of getting to grips with the Dutch language. Our language programmes can be adjusted to meet personal needs and preferences.

Dutch courses are held at training facilities in Amstelveen but also at home/business premises. READ MORE…

Expat Wellbeing

“Taking care of internationals in your local community is not a luxury but a necessity for expat wellbeing.”

At Amstel Expats, we care for the wellbeing of internationals and understand their needs might differ from local residents. We also appreciate that internationals are more likely to encounter certain communication and adjustment problems, e.g. in their dealings with local authorities and institutions.

Together with Goos Marketing Research, we developed a professional measuring tool for local authorities to determine their level of attractiveness for international residents: the Expat Wellbeing Indicator. READ MORE…

“Having lived and worked in several countries, I experienced the trials and tribulations of the international relocation process myself.”

“Raising a bilingual family in my home country, I appreciate the importance of local communications in order to feel connected.”
