Welcome to The Hague


Making the step and moving to a new country can be a bit nerve-wracking, even for the most seasoned expats among us. Which is where the Welcome to The Hague event comes in! Ideal for any expat who has recently arrived in the area, or who have already been settled for a while but are keen to get to know the city a little bit better.

What to expect at Welcome to The Hague

Organised by The Hague International Centre, the Welcome to The Hague is an informal gathering of like-minded individuals, keen to learn more about life for internationals living in The Hague, Delft, Leidschendam-Voorburg and Rijswijk. It will offer all the facts you need to know about the area, formalities, schooling, healthcare, housing and more, in a casual, yet informative space.

Doors open at 5pm on September 12 for an evening full of useful presentations and resources for expats, at The Hague Public Library, at the City Hall on Spui - the heart of the royal city. After the presentations, there will be time to ask any burning questions you may have and network with other expats.

The Welcome to The Hague evening informational session is free of charge, but in order to secure your spot, you do need to register online at The Hague International Centre website. Please be advised that there are no facilities or activities for children during this event.
