Living in Holland the Netherlands

Holland is situated in the west of the Netherlands. A maritime region, Holland lies on the North Sea at the mouths of the Rhine and the Meuse (Maas). It has numerous rivers and lakes and an extensive inland canal and waterway system. Continuous drainage is necessary to keep Holland from flooding. In earlier centuries windmills were used for this task. The landscape was (and in places still is) dotted with windmills, which have become a symbol of Holland. The main cities in Holland are Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague.  These cities, combined with Utrecht and other smaller municipalities, effectively form a single city—a conurbation called Randstad.

The Randstad area is one of the most densely populated regions of Europe, but still relatively free of urban sprawl. There are strict zoning laws. Population pressures are enormous, property values are high, and new housing is constantly under development on the edges of the built-up areas. Surprisingly, much of the province still has a rural character. The remaining agricultural land and natural areas are highly valued and protected. Most of the arable land is used for intensive agriculture, including horticulture and greenhouse agri-businesses.

Documents required to Live and work in Holland

Citizens of the EEA (EU plus Iceland, Norway and Lichtenstein) and Switzerland (but excluding Romania and Bulgaria) can live and work freely in the Netherlands and are not obliged to report to the Aliens Police upon arrival, as other nationals are required to do. However you must be able to show:

  • Passport or other valid travel document
  • Financial means demonstrating that you will not have to rely on public funds during your stay (if your are not working)
  • Health insurance coverage (if you are not working)
  • Proof of employment or work (if applicable)

Although EEA, Swiss citizens and their family members do not need a residence permit to live in the Netherlands, it can be very useful to have one as banks, utility providers, government organisations and employers often ask for one. Once you have lawfully stayed in the Netherlands for 5 years you qualify for a long-term residence document.

Family members of EU citizens
Similar to other European countries, the Netherlands allows family members of EEA citizens to live freely in the country. This covers spouses or registered partners, grandparents, parents-in-law or grand or great-grandchildren of EEA or Swiss citizens. Children over the age of 21 or antecedents (parents-in-law, grandparents etc.) must demonstrate that the EU family member provided for them or lived with them in the country of origin.

Non-European Nationals
To enter the Netherlands you will need authorisation for temporary stay, known as MVV (Machtiging tot Voorlopig Verblijf) and allowing for visits of longer than 90 days. please visit for more information

Dutch Health Insurance

You must take out insurance with a Dutch insurer within four months of arrival even if you already have an existing policy that gives you cover in the Netherlands. The healthcare insurance cover you purchase must include the Basic package. This is the minimum legal requirement. Visit website (in Dutch) for more details. The Dutch trade association of health insurance providers includes some information in English and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport offers information in several languages including English.

Basic insurance (basis verzekering)

The basic Dutch health insurance covers general medical care (visits to the huisarts, for example), hospital stays, dental care for children up to age 18, most prescription medicine and various appliances. Costs start at approximately EUR 100 a month. For more information on healthcare please see
