We are pleased to inform you that on behalf of your employer, Eres Relocation will assist with your relocation to the Netherlands.
We offer assistance with area orientation, immigration, home finding, schooling and settling-in topics. Depending on your employer’s policy, we will offer you one or several of the above. Your direct contact person in our office, the International Mobility Coordinator (IMC), will inform you in detail about the assistance that you can expect from eres.
Today, we would like to get you started by showing you what life in the Netherlands could be like.
When looking for things to do in your Dutch home town, please visit the local Tourist information or the App store and download the City App of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Leiden, Utrecht, The Hague and possibly other cities too. They will show you all local news and upcoming events, local markets, pop-up stores, music performances, tourist information and more: all you need to start getting to know your city and jump right in the local life.

PS: We have been browsing the internet for several days and hours in search for eBooks and websites that offer information on Relocating to NL in the broadest sense: anything that a newcomer would need or want to know. Feel free to download this extensive pdf file of 17 pages A4, full of links on any topic that you can ever think of. I am sure that you will find it extremely helpful: Expat Useful links 2020 ERES
As you can imagine, it’s quite the task to keep it updated. May we ask you, in return, that you feed us with changes and additions?
