About NFIA

Your One-Stop Shop for Success in the Netherlands

For more than 40 years, the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) has served as a one-stop-shop for successful European expansion. It has been supporting nearly 5,000 companies from some 50 countries, to establish or expand their business in the Netherlands.

As an operational unit of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, NFIA helps and advises foreign companies in the various stages of establishing, rolling out and expanding their international activities in the Netherlands. NFIA is your first port of call, connecting you with regional partners in the Invest in Holland Network as well as resources and tools needed to make investment decisions.

Personalized information and practical solutions

Even during these new normal times, the Dutch spirit is still there. NFIA assists you in your site selection, establishment, and expansion processes. Our free and confidential services provide you with all the information needed to make a business case for the Netherlands. How NFIA can help you:

  1. Providing up-to-date, customized information on the Netherlands in general, relevant business locations, Dutch legislation and tax regulations, labor issues, permit procedures, governmental incentives and many other subjects during in-person or digital meetings.
  2. Organizing tailor-made fact-finding trips in close cooperation with our Invest in Holland network. Meet with relevant business partners, government authorities, a variety of Dutch networks and service suppliers, and other relevant contacts in the investment process, all considering a safe social distance. As visiting the Netherlands in person is not always possible, the NFIA offers an additional solution in a digital fact-finding trip to unpack what your business needs, all from the comfort of your home or office.
  3. Presenting practical solutions that simplify and optimize establishment in the Netherlands.
  4. Offering tailor-made support by NFIA specialists in the agrifood, chemical, IT, high tech systems, life sciences & health and other sectors.

In addition to our headquarters in The Hague, NFIA maintains 28 offices across the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Turkey, the United States of America, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, China, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.

Code of Conduct

In our work we adhere to the different codes that apply to government organizations and their civil servants. These guidelines have been put together in a Code of Conduct for NFIA, which is updated on a regular basis.

"The Netherlands is committed to finding sustainable, innovative and digital solutions to global challenges.
