actually, check out subletting facebook groups and booking. airbnb is insanely expensive in Amsterdam for some reason (and the cost/quality is meh). I usually just post a โ€œlooking for apartment for such and such dateโ€ + some info about myself and photos, and never had any problem finding even a short-term (3 weeks) stay.
Hello fellow nomads
I was wondering what the postal address format is when receiving mail at someone else's home.
I am moving to Amsterdam soon and will be staying at a friend's house. I need to receive a letter with my name but at his address which has his name.
In Sweden for example, I would put <My name> C/O <His name>. In France, that would be <My name> chez <His name>. Do you guys know the equivalent in Dutch?
Thanks !!
Yes itโ€™s:

Your full-name
Street - house number
Zip - City
Netherlands
Sure, but where do I put my friend's name? Since my name is not on the mailbox
why not put his name on the letter ๐Ÿ˜›
It's an official letter (police record extract), it has to have my name
I think something like this:

Your friend
T.a.v. your name
Secretaris
Spoorlaan 13
7608 FGย ย BAARN
Cool! Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚
I use C/O throughout europe and have not had issues
Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ ,

I just arrive in Amsterdam and discovering this nice city. Anyone would like to hangout?
Yes there are. They always are because it's a private space
What you mentio is more a Cafรฉ, but if you rent a private place, it was opened. For example, WeWork stay open during the whole pandemic
Maybe, too late, but I am up to meet
Hey huqpkebqidtwqqpt we e-meet again
Are you still in Amsterdam?
I will be happy to meet
Hello no currently im back in Prague ๐Ÿ™‚

Pretty sure the postperson only looks at the address if they can, and ignores your name or whatever you put there.
At least in NL
If he has a DigID he should be able to request that online via his Gemeente.
... and upload docs etc.
in Switzerland at least it is very common for apartments in a block to only be identified by name and have no number, so the C/O is important for the post-person to know which box to use.
Hello all, I'm now in Amsterdam! Hooray, let's chill? ๐Ÿ˜›

For those that have traveled into Netherlands the past week or so. Do I need print the passenger locator form? or is there a digital version?

Anyone who just arrived in Amsterdam have any leads on housing? Airbnb is crazy expensive right now and curious what other nomads are doing. Also, if anyone is considering a flat share, I'd be up for splitting an Airbnb from mid-Aug to mid-Sept.
Kamernet or rental Facebook groups, these are the best options I think
The whole house market sucks right now honestly, I canโ€™t even find something for myself! Iโ€™ve also heard that Facebook groups work from other students.
I flew from Greece on the 25th and they didnโ€™t want anything.
It's a total mess. The facebook groups look promising, but the first few people that I've contacted through there have all been scammers, so not too encouraging...
rcm72mo
Iโ€™m moving in September. I honestly thing right now the market is so โ€œhotโ€ that we need to suck it up ๐Ÿ˜
rcm72mo
Iโ€™m paying crazy rates for 2 months of airbnb as a start. May we all find cheaper long term accommodation after ๐Ÿคฃ
Yeah, to follow up on this. I flew from Portugal, and had no passport control or passenger locator checks. Just had airline check negative Covid test
You could also try Housing Anywhere, I know there were some good deals on hotel rooms ;)

Just saying hello. Haven't really figured out how to use this website much or slack. Anyway, I've been in Amsterdam for 3-4 weeks now and it's a fantastic city. If anyone wants to hang out or explore, hit me up. I'm here for the fall/winter, have met very few people thus far, but the Dutch are friendly (and notably direct, LOL) Entire city is like walking through a postcard. Am going to try and get involved in a few meetup's and I haven't been on Facebook in years but several people have told me that, their group's thing, is active, so might try that. Anyway, Amsterdam and the Netherland, A++ for me thus far. Onwards!
Hey Adam, heading back to Amsterdam (itโ€™s my base) for a month or so tonight. So hit me up if you want to meet up for a coffee or beer. Iโ€™ll probably be busy next week, but some time after should be easy!
Cool, get settled in, and let's grab a beer in a week or two. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿป
hey guys, mind if I join for that coffee/beer? ๐Ÿ™‚
rcm72mo
ahhh! Iโ€™m there in two weeks! Happy to meet for a coffee/beer then as well
I'll be there as of tomorrow. Would love to meet up!
๐Ÿ›ฌ siujbqint just arrived in ๐Ÿ›ถ Amsterdam, #netherlands
Hey, ping me when you all want to meet
I need 1.5h to commute from Rotterdam to Amsterdam. Cheers
Heey, Iโ€™m also here. Would love to join
Hey everyone. Yesterday Iโ€™ve arrived in Amsterdam and will be here till Saturday. Iโ€™m also planning to buy a second-hand bike to explore the country. My next stop for the weekend is going to be the Hague. I wanna make a small circle from there to Rotterdam, Utrecht, and then back to Amsterdam, where Iโ€™ll stay till 6 of September.
Please let me know if you are somewhere in the country and want to have fun partying_face I could adjust my route.
๐Ÿ›ฌ uufvmnbcxpri just arrived in 's-Hertogenbosch, #netherlands
okay so letโ€™s start aiming for a date? can everybody do sometime next weekend? 28. โ€” 29.?
I'm with mvkloelpfmu let's get something scheduled for this weekend!
+1
I should be free from Friday onwards
Not sure how big group we can make as most of places wonโ€™t let more than 4 people at the same table :)
Just checking in. (and still learning how to use Slack.). I'm free much of the time (work NYC hrs related to stock market there, but can often break away), Weekends are great, but I have a lot of flexibility and would love to meet up with anyone here. Someone set a date. ๐Ÿ™‚
nice! ๐Ÿ™‚ so how about Sunday (29. 8.) afternoon/early evening? I can pick a place and book a table, just let me know the preferences with emojis ๐Ÿ‘‡
also Iโ€™ll probably go bouldering to Monk Amsterdam before, in case anyone wants to join. ๐Ÿ™‚
beer it is! Iโ€™ll book something on friday and post it here. stay tuned.

Hey all, bit of a random ask but trying to find someone with a locally (Netherlands) incorporated business. Need to find a local business partner for a short term project. Love to chat with anyone that might be interested.
Are we still doing it?)
If the weather stays good, we could go to Waterkant. Itโ€™s a nice hangout place. If it rains we might have to find something else :-/

sorry, life got a bit busy! Iโ€™m still down for tomorrow and Waterkant looks great ๐Ÿ™‚ kfzcmdt tvbtsjmob njjnekecwsf how about 5pm?
Works for me!
Does not work for me anymore ๐Ÿ˜ž Have a dinner with friends... But I'm always happy to meet up again any other day too
zuwrcwvhelm now that it's raining and we're already down one person, I'm thinking it makes sense to reschedule. Agree?
yep
the weather should be better the upcoming week anyway
Tomorrow looks good weather wise :)
Sounds great. Iโ€™ll join you.

I also wanna try to rent a kayak on Wednesday. Let me know if you would like to join.
curious if anyone has had any historical experience with a mandate around quarantine within the Netherlands? Looks like policies will be changing starting Sept 5. and folks will have to quarantine upon arrival from high risk areas, even if you are vaccinated
rcm72mo
I came in on the 1st and they requested my covid certificate on the departure side (Lisbon). No checks on arrival. Supposedly they also ask you to fill a health declaration but no one asked me for anything (even though I filled it on the plane).
Donโ€™t know if theyโ€™re more relaxed within the EU vs outside. I had 0 problems. Might change like you say though
๐Ÿ›ฌ sctyforykyje just arrived in 's-Hertogenbosch, #netherlands
armdhl the rules are changing since Sept 5. Thereโ€™s a now a quarantine requirement for those arriving from high risk countries

<@U027E2ZSGTH> In the past this was not enforced and authorities relied on honesty and discipline of people arriving. I am quite sure this will remain the same
lgmnruh super helpful. Thanks for the information.
If you hold an American passport but are are already living in the Schengen area, if you fly to the Netherlands from a Schengen country, do you need to worry about the restrictions on Americans entering the Netherlands?
From what I understand, no. The restrictions depend on what country you are flying from but be aware that some of the EU countries are being changed to high risk.

A friend of a friend from the US wants to fly to the Netherlands but won't be fully vaccinated before their departure ticket. Are they screwed or can they substitute the vaccination requirements with a negative test?

Hey. I want to go to Amsterdam for a weekend but airbnb prices are crazy, like $120/night for a room. Are there better options for a short term stay?
A different city honestly. Our public transport is very reliable, so itโ€™s easy to get in and out of Amsterdam from the rest of the country. Youโ€™d have to take travel time and costs into account though.
I tried finding different cities but they are all quite pricy since airbnbs are not so common in less touristy areas(specially for long term), I was trying to find a spot in Rotterdam which is slightly cheaper, not worth it if you want to be going to amsterdam, maybe utretch could be an option for short stays

I eventually found a place in duivendrecht which is still in amsterdam zuid, if you can find a spot near the metro there it's a good option
what hpklkhqor and kuogvvseiqjt said โ˜๏ธ Also, take a look at the transport system. Trains work really well, you have really a lot of places that are just 30 min away by train/bus if AMS pricing is out of your reach.

If youโ€™re here just for a short vacation. Well either you know someone with a spare room, or facebook groups, or hostel. Or you just bite the bullet and spend the cash ๐Ÿ˜›
