ACCESS is a not-for-profit organisation established in The Hague in 1986 to encourage, support, assist and facilitate internationals coming to the Netherlands for business, research, or diplomatic posting. 

With the direction from the Board of Directors, an Executive Director as well as an Operations Manager, we are completely managed and staffed by volunteers, providing a service that is literally unique in the entire world. Today ACCESS provides no-cost services to internationals across the country through our Helpdesk located in our back-office in The Hague. Since 2012 we have further extended our support to personally respond to and serve internationals through partnerships with municipal expat centres in The Hague, Utrecht, Amsterdam and Leiden.
