Association of Relocation Professionals in the Netherlands

The Association of Relocation Professionals in the Netherlands is a non-profit branche organisation for Dutch professional Relocation & Immigration Companies. ARPN was founded in 2006 and since then the association has developed and matured. ARPN is now a respected partner for Dutch government agencies like the IND (Immigration and Naturalization Service); the UWV (Employee Insurance Schemes Implementing Body), Expat Centers and the Ministry of Safety and Justice. We are an interlocutor of equal merit for the representatives of these organizations, who value our knowledge and experience on the matter of moving people all over the world. ARPN participates in think tanks and in meetings concerning relocation, immigration, housing, schooling and other relevant subjects.

How can you be sure? Ask ARPN!

We are not only a professional sparring partner for government agencies. We also guard, improve and secure the level of professionalism and quality of our members. This is of great interest to organizations with justified demands when it comes to relocating employees abroad. There are many relocation and immigration service providers in the Netherlands. Some are bigger, some are smaller, but they all have their own characteristics and working methods. The question you may ask yourself is how you can you be sure that you will work with a good and reliable company when you need to relocate employees? The answer to that question is evident: ask ARPN!
