In loving memory of Antoine van Veldhuizen

Expatica’s newly designed website is the long-term creation of our former managing partner, Antoine van Veldhuizen, who lost his life on MH17 on July 17, 2014, along with his family. In his loving memory we launch the new site and acknowledge his efforts to continually improve Expatica and make us a better team. We hope the final version of the new site is everything he once dreamed.

We would love to hear from you
