Dear readers,

I’d like to tell you a bit about the Expat Centre events. We’ve organised a lot of events coming up soon, which give you the chance to meet other international people and get useful information as well. Visit our website and look under events and news for all the information about educational, tax and welcome events. During the latter, the mayor of Leiden will welcome new international people in the Leiden region, and you can meet our preferred partners who offer relevant services for internationals. I hope to meet you and your partner at these events. Don't forget to register! See you then.

Enjoy the read!
