Expat Centre header

Due to COVID-19, we have adjusted the services of the Expat Center Leiden. Registrations are now conducted at the City Office (Stadskantoor) of the Municipality of Leiden, we answer questions via email instead of in person, and have postponed many events or replaced them with webinars.

Many companies now have to adjust their processes. Sometimes this is possible by working from home, but often it takes more drastic measures. Complex situations arise, especially in cases of global mobility, especially when employees have not yet travelled to the Netherlands. The Expat Centre Leiden has actively researched possibilities offered by the government and we share them on our website. The expat centers in the Netherlands share some solutions among themselves. On other solutions we can advise the companies because our partners have advice for international employees, freelancers or the company that employs them. In this corporate newsletter you will find signals from companies and knowledge institutes in the region, articles from our partners that are relevant to companies, a representation of trends as identified by us and an overview of the Expat Centre Leiden's services. We continue to help expats and companies in all phases of the journey the expat has in our region.
