The moment you arrive in the Netherlands your residence card is the most important document to obtain as soon as possible. This card proves that your stay in the Netherlands is legal. Details on where, how and when, can all be arranged by TOSS. We are happy to pick you up at Schiphol airport or somewhere else and escort you to the IND office or Expat centre to get your residence card.
For example, if you apply for a residence card yourself as a foreign student, using your orientation year, you can fill out on the form where you would like to pick up your card. If an immigration specialist did this they can complete it for you.
There are several IND offices in the Netherlands; knowing where you would be staying/working would make it convenient to pick the one nearest to you. Once your application is approved you will receive a letter which notifies you that your residence card is ready to be picked up. Once you have received that particular letter you can make an appointment at the IND office online.
There are a few Expat Centres in the Netherlands, for example in Amsterdam, Utrecht and The Hague. At these centers you could also pick up your residence card and combine this with getting your BSN.
The Expat centre charges you for these services but usually making an appointment with a municipality will take more time. Thus, while costing money, you can complete your registration with just one appointment. Find out which terms and conditions are applicable to obtain your BSN.

I recently moved to the Netherlands and my employer secured the services of TOSS to manage the transition. We worked with Pim at TOSS closely during the settlement period. From applying for BSN to managing the housing search to putting in the application for 30%, Pim managed this process in a meticulously organized and efficient manner. The communication was always very clear and timely. He was really helpful, to an extent that he also helped us move (quite literally helping us transport suitcases) as well as facilitated our engagement with the real estate agents. The 30% ruling application was managed seamlessly with regular updates. I’d highly recommend TOSS‘ services if you are new to the Netherlands and need services and support to settle in. Thanks to Pim for making it super easy for us 🙂
