When you move to another country in your life, for whatever reason, you have to adapt to your new environment. Have you received a residence permit? Then integration is the next step. This means that you will get to know the language and the culture. If you come from a country within the EU, integration is not mandatory. But for everyone who lives or works in the Netherlands, it is important that they can speak in Dutch and that they also participate in society.

Integration in the Netherlands

Civic integration in the Netherlands means that you prepare for the six exam components: speaking, reading, writing, listening, KNM (Knowledge of Dutch Society) and ONA (Orientation on the Dutch Labor Market). You normally get three years for this. The Dutch government has many rules and forms for this. Nederlands de Baas helps you with the entire process; for example applying for the loan, the registration for the exams and also all forms that are requested by the municipality and by DUO (the government). We ensure that you meet the requirements on time and within your budget so that you do not have to worry about a fine or paying back the loan.
