This richly illustrated handbook offers more than 256 full color pages of essential information for the expatriate on all aspects of living and working in the Netherlands such as: registration, career, housing, international education, schools, fiscal and legal issues, health care, telecommunications and insurances. The reader can also find more general information on the Dutch culture and habits, tourist information, language, international clubs, etc. All these subjects are approached from the perspective of the expatriate - both newcomers and expats who have been living in the Netherlands for some time. This and the many useful addresses, phone numbers and Internet urls make The Holland Handbook an indispensable reference book for the employee expat, the expat's partner who does not have a paid or volunteer job (yet), foreign entrepreneurs, the many foreign students who have come to the Netherlands to train or study and professionals who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in expat affairs.
