About us

Expat Center Food Valley aims to create easy access for foreign professionals to the Food Valley region in the Netherlands. Our office is situated in Wageningen and we offer our services to companies and organisations located in the Food Valley region who are hiring or hosting foreign professionals.


Moving to another country means dealing with all kinds of questions and practical issues regarding living and working in your new country of residence. On this website, we provide information about immigration and formalities, housing, taxes, insurance and finance, and social life and leisure. We can help you with all official formalities to be taken care of.  We like to make your move to the Netherlands pleasant and smooth.


Employing people from abroad requires all kinds of practical issues to be solved. We can assist with all necessary immigration formalities (residence permit, BSN number [citizen service number] and work permit). Located in Wageningen, Expat Center Food Valley is easily accessible and works closely together with the Municipality of Wageningen and IND (Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service). We offer a ‘one-stop shop’ for all documents that foreign professionals need upon arrival. We have competitive rates and we can make arrangements at short notice.


We work closely together with a number of partners who offer services regarding housing, taxes, insurance and finance, education and career, and social life and leisure. Information about our partners and the services they are offering is presented on this website. We are still looking for more partners. If you are interested in our partnership programme, please contact us.

Expat Center Food Valley is an initiative of the Municipality of Wageningen, Wageningen University and Research centre, Keygene, Food Valley NL, and is supported by the Province of Gelderland. Expat Center Food Valley works closely together with Expat Center Twente. The working methods regarding immigration and formalities are similar.
