How to Open a Business Bank Account in The Netherlands
When establishing a business in The Netherlands, it's vital to know how to open a business bank account. Even more so while immigrating with the DAFT visa or any other visas that involve establishing a business. Since I immigrated to The Netherlands from the US under the Dutch American Friendship Treaty visa, it's the example I'll be referring to in this article. If you're immigrating from a different country then other factors may apply to you.
How to Register Your Business with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KVK)
Ever wonder how simple (or complex) it is to establish a business in The Netherlands? It entirely depends on which route you're taking with your company, whether it's setting up a sole proprietorship like I did or a broader company involving more personnel and money.
A Chapter of Change, A Season of Goodbyes
A chapter of change, a season of goodbyes. That's what the past couple of years of my life have become. In my recent venture with blogging, I've written an informational series about my immigration from the US to The Netherlands (you can find the beginning of it here). It explains the requirements I had to meet for the visa I applied for and all the tips and tricks to navigate the process on your own, but what I didn't mention were the struggles involved. Sure, I shared the fears and inconveniences I experienced throughout the visa process, but I wanted to remain positive because moving can be a wonderful experience, and for me it still is. My adventure in The Netherlands has been the greatest experience of my life and the opportunities moving somewhere new can offer are bountiful.
What is the Dutch American Friendship Treaty (DAFT)?
In the summer of 2019 I was searching for a way to drastically change my life by immigrating to The Netherlands so I could permanently live with my partner, and amidst my research, I stumbled across mention of the DAFT visa. When I read about how little the requirements were compared to other visas, I was a bit skeptical, but hopeful.
Tales of Loss and Longing
Previously I said I was going to post these in batches of 3, but seeing how there are 31 days in the month, I have to squeeze in a fourth poem somewhere. It seemed fitting for this batch's theme. Also, check out pt. 1 of my Inktober turned Poetober thread if you haven't had the chance yet. Thanks for reading!
A Collection from the Mind & Heart
At the beginning of October, one of my friends suggested the idea of doing "Poetober" with the prompts instead Inktober. Since I can't draw and the last poem I wrote was years ago, I thought this was an awesome idea. As I progress through the month, I'd like to share the poems in batches of three. Oh, and I always listen to music while writing, so I've also included my "song inspirations" along with each poem. Hope you enjoy them!
