International Community

KIN aims to build an active New Zealand community in the Netherlands and create opportunities for its members to build relationships with each other and maintain strong links to New Zealand.


KIN is a network of over 1,500 Kiwis living in the Netherlands


We know it's tough being away from home sometimes. Connect with fellow Kiwis, Dutchies and other expats


We try to host an event once a quarter to get together and connect in person

Meet the Team

We're a friendly bunch of Kiwi expats who get together regularly to help bring Kiwi & international communities together
