And once you get the hang of riding your bicycle like a true Dutchie, you’ll never want any other form of transportation!

If you’re planning on moving here, luckily, the Netherlands is a part of the European Union and allows fellow members from other EU countries free access to live and work here. You won’t even need a permit. However, if you’re planning on staying longer than three months, you will need to register yourself with the IND (immigration and naturalisation service). And even if you’re not from the EU, it is still quite easy to get jobs in the Netherlands. All you need to do is apply for a work permit and start job hunting.
