July - August 2021

Expat Centre header

The start of the summer is marked by the relaxation of most of the corona measures that were put in place. More and more countries are getting a green or yellow travel code and the EU digital certificate is online, which means it is easier and safer for us to go abroad again.

Whether you go on a holiday, travel to your home country, or decide to stay in the Netherlands, we have put together a newsletter full of essential summer news for you! An article about taking your kids on a holiday, a checklist of what to keep in mind when going abroad, and museum exhibitions are just a few examples of what you will find in this newsletter. Have a look at our suggestions and make sure to enjoy the summer to the fullest! 

Best wishes,

The Expat Centre Leiden team

Meet & Mingle July 1st!
