There are three problems with the expat information that you can find online:

  • It is not current: last years rules do often not apply this year.
  • It is not specific: an American moving to the Netherlands will need to do things different from an Italian in the same place
  • It is not chronological: there is a specific order to do things and often catch-22 situations that have to be avoided

We have made a very clear checklist (ordered chronologically) with information on what to do next, where to do it, and how to do it, with up-to-date links.
