Every year, more than 4,500 new internationals come to the Hague region. In total, more than 60,000 internationals live and work in The Hague, in various sectors such as embassies, NGOs, universities and multinationals. The Hague International Centre is the first point of contact for these people who can have all sorts of questions and challenges to overcome.
In addition to international newcomers, The Hague international Centre also helps internationals who have been living in The Hague for a longer period of time. On the website of The Hague International Centre there is a lot of information on, for example, relocation, health care and education. Recently, The Hague International Centre has also started organising monthly seminars: CONNECT events.
During the CONNECT events, other municipal departments and partner organisations give presentations on a certain subject, such as health care, leisure and housing. These seminars supplement the information from the website and deal with frequently asked questions. The first CONNECT event in March concerned taxes. Speakers from the municipal tax department provided information on municipal taxes. Additionally, a tax advisor spoke about special arrangements for expats.
