How can a professional relocation consultant help you when leaving the Netherlands?

If your assignment in the Netherlands is over, you’re probably already thinking about your new destination. However, before you think about settling into a new country, you need to set your Dutch affairs in order.


Leaving the Netherlands is a bit more complicated than packing your bags and jumping on the next flight out.


These are a few of the things you will need to check off your list before leaving the Netherlands:


You have to give timely notice for the end of your rental contract (the exact period depends on the contact terms).

You need to cancel all your utilities and contracts: internet, mobile phone, gas, electricity, TV, and others.

Deregistering from the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen, BRP).

When you leave your Dutch apartment, you will have to follow very strict rules about the condition it has to be in. You will need local support to ensure that you don’t have to pay penalties and that you can get your security deposit back.

You will also have to terminate (or continue, if you choose to) your medical insurance and/or pension contributions. Our Departure Services consultants can help you make the right choice for each of these options, depending on your personal circumstances.


Leaving the Netherlands on a tight schedule? You don’t need to overpay your way out of the country or leave issues unsolved.


We can help ensure you have a smooth, stress-free departure:

Why do you need Departure Support when leaving from Amsterdam, Eindhoven, The Hague, or another Dutch city?

Our Departure Support services are designed for expats who have spent a relatively short time in the Netherlands – typically less than three years. This means that you most likely won’t be aware of all the local laws and obligations.


This is where our local experts come in to save the day with:


Extensive knowledge of the national tenancy and expatriation laws.

All the laws that are applicable to foreign workers in the Netherlands.

Dutch fluency to eliminate the need for expensive translators.


All of our knowledge and 45 years of experience in international relocation will be at your service. We can help you with:


Support at the apartment handback: our relocation consultants will be right by your side to help prevent irregular practices and ensure that you get your deposit back.

Repairs, cleaning, and more: we’ll handle all these services on your behalf – it’s always easier and more affordable when you speak Dutch fluently!

Expert insights: we’ll make you aware of everything you need to take care of, from apartment cleaning to de-registering at your local Dutch municipality. You won’t have to worry about negative surprises in the short or long run!
