Insurance is big business in the Netherlands. Apart from the basic government insurance, there are a number of other private medical insurance providers who offer a range of insurance coverage options.

In order to work, study or simply travel, you will always need a good international health insurance with experience to cover you, whatever is the length of your expatriation in Amsterdam and the Netherlands.

Expatriate health insurance

Expatriate health insurance in the Netherlands

With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Amsterdam is an essential step. As far as healthcare is concerned, your local social security scheme won’t be accompanying you to your host country and, once abroad, you might be surprised by the care system you find in Netherlands. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!

EasyExpat.com works in partnership with APRIL International to provide specific insurance solutions for travelling or staying outside your country of nationality.

Insurance solutions to suit your profile and with the flexibility to meet your insurance needs

Designed for either short or long stays, APRIL International’s insurance policies offer protection against any problems that might arise before departure or during your time in Netherlands: cancelling your trip, medical expenses following an illness or accident, needing to be repatriated, causing damage to a third party or losing your luggage.
