Planning to Move to the Netherlands




Though I know there are exceptions...religious open-mindedness, as well as political, homosexual, racial, and gender related issues and tolerance regarding those issues are the true aspects that draw me....

You have a very narrow minded understanding of Dutch politics, and would be undoubtedly disappointed by the Dutch political outlook. Frankly I think you'd be much better suited to somewhere like Portland Oregon, especially if the tolerance about these issues are what you care about and drugs and sex aren't important to you.



aside from the beautiful cities and buildings...the canals and the lights...the mix of cultures I can go on and on and I'm sure it will be nothing new to anyone...

Which, of course, you'll get a lot of, living out in the country. (???????)



It's funny but I felt a comfort in the NL that I've only felt while being at my Grandparents house, it's a feeling I find to be undescrible..and It's amazing.

Hmmm...not so much funny ha-ha as funny peculiar, I guess.



My plan is to open a Dutch bank account (as advised by my counselor as well as my friend who has lived in Germany for the last 2 years and is quite familiar with the NL) in the near future..being as I am going to study abroad there next spring and I'd like it to be there and accessible when I move there...I do plan to speak with an immigration lawyer of course prior to my actual move....


Why would you want to set up your account before you get there when you can do so in person your first day? That way you'll have an address.


I'm an International Studies Major at a Liberal Arts School where I've been able to devise my own curriculum so that by the time I graduated I will have dabbled into subjects like international business, econ, education, and even art history...

I was looking at jobs offered at xpatjobs.com and many of them seem very good and I feel that by the time my fiance and I are done with college we'll be able to meet standards of them...

PLEASE, any advice and opinions or even your negative criticism is asked for...this is my dream

My advice is don't put the cart before the horse.

You have a great opportunity to spend some time as a student in Amsterdam. Why on earth would you decide that you have to live there now? I'm not saying you can't live there for the rest of your life, but first things first...
thanks for the heads up smokedpeppers. Well I've talked to a lot of people about it and I've concluded to some of the steps I'm going to take....

I have tons of reading material regarding immigration into the Netherlands and I'm told by many it is not easy..

I am of dutch descent...my last name is dutch and my grandfather on my other side came from Amsterdam...I've heard that being of dutch descent could help a lot in regards to immigration...

Next year my fiance and I are going to study at UvA...any chance we get we are going to get out of the city to explore others..

My Fascination with the Netherlands all began this passed summer when I visited Amsterdam.. my obsession hardly involves the tolerant views on sex, and drugs and is more focused on cultural aspects...

would be a worth while visit.

It takes a whole day to get through both indoor and outdoor parts.

Thats a pity.

A worthwhile experience I look forward to visiting again.



I made my first trim a'dam this past summer and I cannot wait to return...Being in the Netherlands was overwhelming and I am more than anxious to return...Seeing pictures of the Grasshopper and the centrum lit him along the canals at night still give me the chills...

I'd like to see more of the country. The main reason for my trip is to find out where exactly I'd like to move to in the Netherlands once I graduate College.

I'd like to see the country side...visit dutch villages with windmills ECT. I'd also like to make trips to other urban like areas... Maybe cities that are a mixture of both...I'd really like to know some good cities to visit. The canals are also something that fascinate me

I plan to fly into amsterdam stay there a few days then go across the country to cities like Den haag, Maastricht, Rotterdam, Arnhem, and Utrecht...as well as other cities suggested to me (by you) then return to Amsterdam and fly back out from there..

If you have any advice..for cheap student airfair prices, places to go, things to see, places to stay, bars to go to, beers to drink, amazing coffeeshops/strains across the country....

I plan to use the eurail student pass around holland.

I am really looking forward to experiencing more interaction with the dutch people in their culture...which absolutely astonishes me...


any advice will do...

THANKS!
story gose.....in early 2007, jBomb, another American collage student studying in Amsterdam, took a trip and was kidnapped at a rave, never heard from again..............be VERY careful on your quest

Can't help with airfairs etc, that's something you'd have to research from home I guess.

But there are great cities to visit in the NL. Maastricht is one I'd really recommend: right down in the most Southern tip near the border with germany and Belgium it's a beautiful and historic city.

Another great place is Utrecht with it's sunken canals and student culture.

And Deventer and Groningen are beautiful places too. Leiden, another city with a heavy student population is attractive too.

Sorry, it's not advice exactly just thoughts. But I do hope your trip becomes a reality and that you enjoy it thoroughly

:-)
please excuse my "tongue and cheek" on a previous post to your question...i have no answer for you

although your desire does appear popular with the masses on here, seems only those with enough intestinal fortitude realized it....
I am of dutch descent...my last name is dutch and my grandfather on my other side came from Amsterdam...I've heard that being of dutch descent could help a lot in regards to immigration...

Unless your parents or grandparents are currently Dutch citizens, your 'descent' is not going to help at all. It's not Nazi Germany.
