open embassy is here 24/7 to provide answers to status holders’ questions on getting their lives organised in the Netherlands. Who better to help them than their new neighbours, who know the official as well as informal ways of getting things done?

Your local know-how can be a great help to status holders.

Many written and unwritten rules may be self evident to you, but very bewildering to newcomers. You know howto work your way around it, and maybe have a social network to help you with that. This is super valuable to statusholders that lack such knowledge or connections. Open embassy is built to make helping-out fast and easy. You can log onany time to answer a couple ofquestions – whenever you feel like itor have the time.
