Why Amsterdam?

Internationals are becoming increasingly interested in moving to Amsterdam on a temporary basis. The city offers the idyllic expat experience with a welcoming and lively atmosphere. Corporations are temporarily moving their employees to support and launch new offices in one of the most economically formidable cities in Europe. Additionally, students are flocking to Amsterdam for an adventurous while manageable study abroad experience as there are endless services to support them in their short-term stay. Unlike many other European cities, it is not necessary to learn the native language to navigate and settle into the city. The large community of internationals helps newcomers integrate seamlessly into the diverse and accepting city culture. Amsterdam also offers reliable public transportation and exceptional cycling paths making it uncomplicated to access the entire city as well as the rest of the country. The city encompasses all the benefits of a large city along with all the charms of a small town.

Challenges of Moving to Amsterdam

Despite the endless attractive qualities of Amsterdam, one of the greatest challenges for expats is navigating the housing shortage. There are many barriers in securing serviced accommodation. New city laws as well as landlords tend to require longer term agreements. Landlords also tend to require proof of a certain income threshold limiting the options for those who are self-employed, digital nomads, and remote employees. The options are also lessened as hotels and Airbnbs are insufficient for anyone who is not a quick-visit-tourist, as they do not offer rental agreements which are required for an expat to be able to register at the municipality and receive a citizen number to give them access to essential services such as banking and identification verification (DigiD). Additionally, many rentals come without furniture and essential appliances forcing an expat to make a large financial investment on a short-term rental. Furthermore, the plethora of scams, rising cost of utilities, and the risk of poor communication with landlords can create an overwhelming and intimidating experience for an international looking for the right temporary accommodation.
