Service update: Longer waiting times for appointments

Please note that our offices will be more difficult to reach in the coming time.

If you are unable to reach us by phone, please email us at welcome@amsterdam.nl. Do consider that we may not be able to reply to you as quickly as you would normally expect. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this time. Read more.
