Working at the UvA

Support for international staff

If you are moving to the Netherlands to work at the University of Amsterdam, there are a number of things to arrange, from residence permits and insurance, to housing and healthcare. We're here to help.

Staff immigration office

The Staff Immigration Office is here to support you. Our main task is to help arrange all the paperwork, including work permits, residence permits, insurance and registering with local authorities. We will guide you through the immigration process as soon as your Faculty contacts us.

Please note: the Staff Immigration Office services all faculties except the Faculty of Science. Coming to work for the Faculty of Science? See the information at the bottom of this page.

Intake interview

As soon as you arrive in the Netherlands, we'll arrange an intake interview. During the intake, we can help you register with your local municipality, open a bank account and arrange health insurance.

Any questions?

If you're new to the Netherlands, feel free to contact us by phone or email.
