  1. it all depends. being born their it is a nice passport to have. BUT loosing nationality on getting another one (that is in principle because it depends how you get another nationality. if you did not request it and get it for example as a minor because your parents naturalized in another country you can get a dual nationality) Further taxes (especially wealth tax) are high. i still have real estate their (but because it is partly mortgaged the base for the wealth tax is nill) rental income not taxed. further moved my butt to LU, where there is no inherentance tax in the straight line, capital gains(hold >6m) not taxed…. so in the end only some interest and dividends taxed. and slowly working on a plan B for if the shit hits the fan. exploring austria and portugal.

  2. I am from Spain, my friend in Texas referred me to this channel you make a lot of sense but I do not understand anything until she referred me to a financial counselor in USA that help me to craft my portfolio and over a year we have been working together making consistent profit enough to get me a new apartment and care for parents.

  3. You should also talk about the Dutch American Friendship Treaty (DAFT) where US nationals just need to invest €4,500 in their OWN company to have an initial 2 years residency, and subsequently a 5 years renewal. No need for language, integration or hefty payments. Also, partners have unlimited access to the labour market as per amendments done on 2020

  4. You can keep your other citizenship if you have been married to a Dutch person for some years. But Dutch people usually live together as boyfriend and girlfriend instead of marrying, they even have kids together and chose not to marry, this is a cultural thing. The Dutch get around a lot of the legal reasons for marrying (property, tax, emergencies) by having what's called a "registered partnership". Also, you have to go through a bunch of exams in order to become a Dutch citizen, like Dutch language exams and others. But Netherlands is as strict with taxes as is the US. In addition, It's a small country, with not many natural resources, below the sea level, Dutch is not a wide spoken language. Houses are small, old and expensive, the weather sucks, landscape is boring, everything is flat and look the same throughout the whole country. Dutch expats are campaigning for dual nationality rights for some time now, but without success so far. This has been going on for some years now. However, the country is well administered, is efficient and has a good economy. It really has a good environment for startups, there is a favorable environment for creation of new businesses as Netherlands is somewhat a tax heaven, so we are seeing a good number of interesting startups thriving, like Booking, Adyen, 3D Hubs etc., and also many international businesses choose opening European headquarters in the country, like Netflix, Databricks, Amazon, Disney Streaming Services, Adidas and son on due to this fact. Netherlands is potentially becoming the new EU financial hub post-Brexit. So, based on this, Netherlands seems like a good country for making money and build businesses, but not exactly a choice to live forever. So, I don't know if this golden visa is worth compared to other countries in Europe like Estonia, Poland and Portugal, which are countries having a good economic recovering after 2008, tearing down bureaucracy and also investing in a good environment for startups and creation of new businesses.

  5. As A Dutch Citizen my advise would be just to avoid The Netherlands for long time stay.
    The taxes here are crazy and have to pay that for almost anything. ( with the exeption of capital gain tax but that will change soon)
    Im looking at Serbia for long time residency, anyone know how the taxes are there?

  6. You have been talking before about the wealth taxes that are coming, well as a citizen of the Netherlands who fled the country because of the taxes, i can tell you it's already there in the Netherlands. It's called "box 3" . Let's say you have 3 million Euro in investments (outside of your main house that is), you'll have to pay 48.131 Euro per year in tax just for having it. Even if you are in the stock market and make a giant loss, they don't care ! Pay up ! and that's over 4000 Euro net a month. For a lot less than that you can live, tax free, in thailand in a pool villa have a pickup truck and a good lifestyle.

    So as a dutch citizen i say : Forget about the Netherlands unless you love paying taxes, it doesn't stop with box3, we have crazy taxes on cars, roadtax, fuel, electricity, gas and everything else. Nevermind the 21% sales tax on everything but food. I escaped 16 years ago, first to Germany and now to Thailand, those countries have their own problems but at least they don't grab cash from your bank accounts just for having it. If i could throw away my dutch passport i'd do it in a heartbeat.

  7. Love the Netherlands, but the housing situation there is certainly one big obstacle to consider. For a Nomad (i.e. renting space), you either have the choice of paying outrageous prices for a humble abode, or wait for many. many, MANY years to get "allocated" a place in a desirable place through the government run system.

  8. This ticks me off.. We lived in NL for 30+ yrs Paying some of the highest tax's in Europe.. When we moved to Portugal on retirement ! They blocked our attempts to take up the lesser known 'Non Habitual Residence ' scheme which would have allowed us 10 yrs tax free .. Hypocrites comes to mind..Oh and if you live in NL. you better learn the language ,they don't take kindly to speaking English to you for longer than eighteen months

  9. As a Dutch citizen, I can say if you do not want to pay a lot of taxes…. Well The Netherlands is not the most tax friendly country to say the least and there are talks right now of raising them even more….

  10. Thanks for flying the flag for the Netherlands its good for cycling as its flat and has unfortunately speed limits my Aston has to observe unlike Belgium and Germany. However, do discover the MILLIONS AND MILLIONS the government wastes to stop Netherlands becoming a sea wreck underwater with their pointless sea defences. In the spirit of out wonderful Mr Henderson more educated than myself and everyone else who watches this channel, would you buy a house on the edge of a cliff?

  11. Afaik they don't allow dual citizenship. By the way how will a country know if a citizen gets a second passport? Do they all inform each other about these things ?
