Retiring in the Netherlands

Hello everyone,

Why did you choose to retire in the Netherlands? What are the advantages compared with your home country?

What were your main considerations when deciding to move? For example, taxes, ease of transferring your pension, etc..

Are there any specific formalities you had to go through as a retiree moving to the Netherlands (for example, is there a particular retirement visa)?

What is the Netherlands' healthcare like? Have you had any good or bad experiences dealing with healthcare professionals?

Do you have any tips for other retirees in the Netherlands?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Hello Priscilla,
No I am not retired.
And I have presently moved to Nigeria. I was in Netherlands for a short period only.
Sorry I couldn't help.
