Making moves so you don’t have to
Your one-stop solution for employee relocation

Immigration Services

Citizens with a non EU nationality need to undergo an immigration procedure if they wish to stay and or work in the Netherlands.  Settle Service can provide peace of mind by ensuring all documents are in order and you meet the ever evolving immigration requirements of the Netherlands. We help you through the maze of rules and regulations and make sure your relocation is as stress free as possible.

How it all starts…

Settle Service analyses the specific situation and advices the feasibility and the best procedure(s) to follow. This first step is free of costs. Once the path to be taken is decided, the client receives a personalized account on MySettleService, where you will find a comprehensive overview of the destination city and instructions about getting settled in the Netherlands.
Dependent upon the actual situation, several immigration services are available.
