Moving to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is among the ‘most livable’ cities in the world — so it’s no surprise that many people want to move here.

In the 2005 edition of the annual “quality of life” report from the Mercer Human Resource Consulting agency Amsterdam ended up in 12th place. In 2003 and 2004, the city was listed in 10th place.

That the city is sometimes listed in a slightly lower position is largely due to the fact that major road repairs, along with the construction of a new metro (subway) line, have made Amsterdam’s already narrow streets even more difficult to negotiate. But those projects are all designed to make the city easier to navigate.

Mercer’s analysis is part of a worldwide quality of life survey, covering 215 cities, to help governments and major companies to place employees on international assignments. 12th our 215 isn’t bad, we think. And it leaves just enough room for improvement to keep us on our toes.

Anyway, fact is that many people from around the world fall in love with Amsterdam to such an extend that they want to move here.

Therefore, as we build this site, in the weeks and months to come we’ll let you know what it takes to move to Amsterdam. These are some of the topics we’ll be covering:

  • Visas and permits
  • Finding a place to live
  • How to find employment
  • Moving your stuff
  • And more…
