Expat Center Twente

Expat Center Twente

The Expat Center Twente is an initiative of the World Trade Center (WTC) Twente in Hengelo and supported by the municipalities of Almelo, Borne, Enschede, Hengelo, Hof van Twente and Oldenzaal. The Expat Center Twente is located within the WTC Twente in Hengelo, and once a week at the Stadskantoor in Enschede, with an IND office to arrange the necessary formalities for highly skilled migrants - expats.

The aim of the Expat Center Twente is to provide information to companies in the east of the Netherlands and their highly skilled international employees on all matters concerning moving to the Netherlands. Through this,  the Expat Center Twente wants to make the relocation for both HR managers and expats as smooth as possible.

Apart from giving information, a lot of practical things can be arranged by the Expat Center Twente as well, such as: applying for work and residence permits, an orientation tour through Twente (before the expat actually moves to the Netherlands), Dutch language training, assistance with taxation, help looking for a house, and finding a job for the partner.

The social aspect of moving to another country is not forgotten either; the Expat Center Twente organises events on a regular basis, like the monthly Expat 'Meet&Greet', and family outings a few times a year. Through the English newsletter and social media the international community is kept informed about practical things, but also fun facts and interesting activities in the area.

The Expat Center Twente is a central point for companies and expats. Our team of locals and expats is here to serve you: Your Connection To Twente!
