Expats who are working in Groningen can go to the International Welcome Center North (IWCN), that opened last week. There, they can arrange their paperwork or get help with banking and childcare.
The number of expats who are working in the university, colleges and businesses is growing rapidly in Groningen. The Welcome Center should provide better and quicker service to these foreign employees. Through collaboration with, for example , the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND), expats can quickly obtain residence permits and social security numbers.
