The Netherlands, a country located in Northwest Europe, is bordered by the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east. The Netherlands is divided into 12 provinces, with Amsterdam as the capital. The official language of the Netherlands is Dutch, and the currency is the euro (EUR).
Netherlands, the Dutch United Provinces, declared their independence from Spain in 1579. During the 17th century, they became a leading seafaring and commercial power, with settlements and colonies around the world. After a 20-year French occupation, a Kingdom of the Netherlands was formed in 1815. In 1830, Belgium seceded and formed a separate kingdom.
The Netherlands was a founding member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Economic Community (EEC) (now the European Union [EU]), and participated in the introduction of the euro in 1999.
The Netherlands economy is noted for stable industrial relations, moderate unemployment and inflation, a sizable current account surplus, and an important role as a European transportation hub. A modern, industrialised nation, the Netherlands is also a large exporter of agricultural products. Industrial activity is predominantly in food processing, chemicals, petroleum refining, and electrical machinery. A highly mechanised agricultural sector employs only 2% of the labour force but provides large surpluses for the food-processing industry and for exports.
Depending on your nationality, you might need a visa to travel into the country. For stays of up to 90 days, this visa is called a ‘short stay visa’ or ‘Schengen visa’. For stays longer than 90 days, this is called an entry visa (MVV) and is always followed by a residence permit (VVR).
