Relocating to the Netherlands? Plans to move here? ACCESS, a local not-for-profit organisation, managed by volunteers – who moved here themselves – is here to help.  Our website has many FAQs, but for the ones it does not, do send your questions to helpdesk[at]  We answer any questions you have about moving to, living in and leaving the Netherlands. Questions internationals have when navigating new circumstances, while living here.

ACCESS has been helping internationals for more than 35 years, free of charge. Our teams, like you, are internationals who also had questions. Now, they are here, for you.
