I am an American that came to The Netherlands in 2016 knowing I wanted to stay. So I learned the language, transferred my dietetic credentials, and struggled through many Dutch-speaking jobs. Sometimes life does't work out the way you planned. I now have under a month to apply my one man business with he Dutch-American Friendship Treaty act in order to stay in the country. The application is 1.200 euros and I must have 4.500 euros in my bank account. I must also obtain an accountant. This treaty will grant me the ability to stay in the country practicing dietetics.
