Official Expat Centers in the Netherlands

There are currently 11 official Expat Centers in the Netherlands. Each one is a government organisation that offers an accelerated procedure in arranging the residency and municipal registration of highly skilled migrants and their accompanying family members.


Private initiatives using the Expat Center name

There are commercial parties in the market who operate under the name Expat Center. These companies are not official Expat Centers (even though they may call themselves one). They are not run by a government agency, nor are they affiliated with the municipalities or the Immigration and Naturalisation Services (IND). Therefore, they are not able to directly offer the Expat Center Procedure or other municipal services such as municipal registration or a BSN application (personal public service number).
