The International Welcome Center North (IWCN) is a one-stop shop for international people living 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 events (a chance to start building a social and/or business network during events).

All of this happens at one location, and we are open Monday through Thursday from 10:00 to 17:00 (read more).

The IWCN will be open for limited services BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Regular formalities appointments will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Brexit biometrics appointments can be made online at this link and will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays.
If we can’t assist you via telephone, e-mail or live Chat, then face-to-face information appointments can be made by calling the IWCN.

The IWCN is closed on Fridays until further notice.
Information about public health, business information, official matters and FAQs concerning the Coronavirus can be found at this link.
