About the Netherlands
The Netherlands, also called Holland, is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is located in western Europe and borders the North Sea, Belgium and Germany.
The Netherlands is one of highest densely populated and geographically low-lying countries in the world, a big part of the country is located under sea level.
Residence and work permit in the Netherlands
To be allowed to stay longer than 3 months, EU member states and a few other states are not required to obtain a visa. For a longer stay or if you are planning to work in the Netherlands you need to apply for a “Burgerservicenummer” (BSN). You need to register yourself with your local ‘gemeentehuis’. After your registration, you will automatically receive the BSN to your home address.
If you are not staying for more than 3 months and don’t need to register yourself, you can arrange an appointment at the tax office to get your BSN.
Once you have your BSN, the tax office is able to relate all tax issues to each individual. For instance, you will need this number to open a bank account. Furthermore it ensures that you don’t have to pay immoderate taxes on your salary.
For all citizens of countries who are not allowed to stay for a longer period of time without any visa (except EU member states and a few other countries), there is the opportunity of the so called “authorization for temporary stay” (MVV).
Working in the Netherlands
In general, the salary in the Netherlands is higher than in Spain and Italy, but lower than in Germany or the UK. However, in many cases, the employment contracts are less strict than in other countries. For example, vacation days and Christmas bonuses are often negotiable. Working full time in the Netherlands means working for 38-40 hours a week.
Health insurance in the Netherlands
