“i am not a tourist” Expat Fair to hit Amsterdam on October 7, 2012

This October 7, 2012, Expatica will once again host the iconic “i am not a tourist” Expat Fair at the Beurs van Berlage in the heart of Amsterdam, and the U.S. Consulate General will be right there with them to answer all of your questions about our consular services.

For those not familiar with the event, the “i am not a tourist” Expat Fair is the biggest expat-oriented event in the Netherlands – expected to host 4,500 internationals and friends this year.  Now in its ninth year, it showcases a mix of expat-focused service providers, entertainment, social groups, overseas associations, networking opportunities, information, and the opportunity to mix with thousands of other internationals.

Do you need to report the birth of your American child at the U.S. Consulate? Do you want to know how to renew your American passport? Are you planning to study abroad in the United States, and would like to know how to apply for a visa? Visit us at booth 94 at the “i am not a tourist” fair, and we will be happy to answer all of your questions.

Tickets to the Fair are free if ordered online (EUR 10 at the door). People that order online go into the running to win one of two EUR 10,000 grants from Amsterdam Business School. Further details can be found at

We look forward to seeing you there!
