The International Welcome Center North (IWCN) is a one-stop shop for international people living in, and companies located in, Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe.

We offer services in three areas: government formalities (residence permits and municipal registration); information (practical information and referrals to reliable service providers); and social activities (a chance to start building a social and/or business network during activities and events).

We also provide information to companies and organizations about formalities and practical matters concerning their international employees.

All of this happens at one location, and we are open Monday through Friday from 10:00 to 17:00 hrs.
