Moving to another country almost automatically means that you will be faced with a different way of life. The Netherlands will not be different in that respect. Getting settled will also involve finding your way through the financial system and insurances. Finding a new home, buying a house, taking out a mortgage, saving for your children’s education, buying a car and arranging your health insurance and other private insurances will take a lot of your time and attention. The decisions that you take will have a long-term effect on your financial situation. Making the right choices and comparing the right offers is not easy without some basic knowledge about the way these things are organised in the Netherlands. This section contains information and practical advice that may help you to find your way through all kinds of forms and procedures.
