Partnership Programme

The IN Amsterdam Partnership Programme was created to connect internationals in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area with service providers operating in the international market. The programme offers assistance to internationals by connecting them with relevant service providers; particularly useful for an international’s arrival and first three months in the Netherlands.

The IN Amsterdam Partnership Programme works in cooperation with relevant private parties in the international market. Sectors include banking, driving, childcare, employment, insurance, tax and financial advisers, education (higher education & international schools), language courses, legal services, media, relocation agencies and utilities. The programme allows IN Amsterdam to refer internationals to a reliable network of international-focused service providers.

A full list of IN Amsterdam partners can be found here.

The upcoming Partnership Programme membership will run from 1 January to 31 December 2018. 

Applications for the partnership in January are now closed.
