Welcome to the Netherlands and Twente more specifically! When you’ve just arrived in this country that will be your home for the coming months or perhaps even years, you’ll have to arrange some practical matters. When this is done, you can start exploring and settle in.

One of the first things to arrange is of course finding a house and school for your children. But don’t forget the formalities like registration at the municipality and obtain the social security number, get a medical insurance and bank account.

Please find Check List which will help you planning your relocation.

If you need assistance, you can contact the Expat Center East Netherlands; we are here to help you get started and make sure you have a great time while living and working in Twente.
