Standard of Health Care

^ Back to Top

The Netherlands is a center of medical excellence, with all medical specialties available. All residents are required to pay a nominal premium and obtain a standard package of essential healthcare insurance. Insurance companies are required to accept all residents within their area of activity.

Residents access all health care through the "huisarts" (general practitioners), who are assigned strictly by postal area. Individuals must initially register with one of their local GPs who will provide primary care and make specialist referrals as needed. Long term expatriates register with a huisart in their postal area on a permanent basis or as a temporary resident.

There can be long waiting times to see specialists. As in the United Kingdom, every hospital does not offer every specialty. However, patients will be transferred to facilities where their condition can best be treated.

Many Dutch doctors speak fluent English.

The emergency rooms can be used for urgent specialist care. However, anyone requiring after-hours emergency care is required to consult their local "Huisartsenpost" for treatment and triage as necessary. A "Huisartsenpost" is a cooperative of local huisarts (GPs) who provide care out of hours. They are open 1700 - 0800 Monday to Friday and 24 hours on Saturday and Sunday.

Hospital emergency rooms do not see patients with minor complaints. Such patients will be referred back to the Huisartenpost.

Security

TRAVEL RISK SUMMARY

The Netherlands is a stable and highly developed democracy and business travellers will face few security concerns. However, pickpocketing and bag-snatching can be a problem in the larger cities, especially Amsterdam (particularly in central and tourist-frequented areas and at Schiphol airport) and Rotterdam. Travellers should also be cautious of thieves riding bicycles and mopeds. Organised

Pre-trip Advisory

criminal activity is more likely to focus on fixed business interests, not personnel, and is unlikely to pose a direct threat to business travellers or expatriates.

The country is a potential target for Islamist terrorism. Several suspected Islamist militants have been arrested in recent years, and other alleged Islamist plots have been uncovered. The risk of an attack remains comparable to many Western European countries. While environmental protests can target businesses, anti-corporate groups occasionally target international companies; such attacks tend to focus mostly on property and pose only an indirect threat to personnel.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.

CRIME

^ Back to Top

Petty crime, mainly in the form of pickpocketing, is the main risk to business travellers. Levels of such crime are highest in tourist-frequented areas of Amsterdam and other busy locations, such as the city's Central Station and Schiphol Aiport. Personal belongings and valuables left unattended, especially in a parked car or at airports, may be stolen. Personnel are advised to be particularly alert to thieves in Rembrantsplein and Leidseplein squares and while using the city's tram or metro services. Some thieves use bicycles and mopeds for rapid escape after bag-snatching. Petty theft is common on the train from Schiphol Airport (AMS) to Central Station. A degree of caution should be exercised in larger cities after dark and personnel are advised to take standard security precautions against petty crime.

Visitors should also be aware that criminals posing as police officers sometimes target tourists, particularly those who are of Asian origin, and ask to see passports and credit cards before stealing them. Personnel should always ask to see valid identification before surrendering personal documents. ATM and credit card skimming and email fraud have increased substantially; precautionary measures should be taken while making transactions or replying to any unknown email correspondent.

Violent crime is not a major problem and assaults are unlikely. However, there are increasing instances of homophobic assaults in the Netherlands, which still remains one of the most welcoming countries for alternative lifestyles. Police statistics indicate that reports of discrimination – including verbal and physical assaults – against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT) have increased in recent years, with Amsterdam reported to be particularly affected. Organised crime rarely impacts legitimate business personnel, though expatriates have experienced some extortion demands. Criminal gangs are especially active in drug trafficking, money laundering, prostitution, pornography and car theft.
