Dutch TV – sharing the secrets of successful emigration

If you enjoy watching Dutch television programmes with a focus on emigration, such as ‘Ik Vertrek’ and ‘Grenzeloos Verliefd’, then you’re certainly not alone. For it would seem that many of us are truly fascinated with the idea of emigration. And the great news is, that a brand new television programme all about moving abroad is coming to Dutch TV in 2013.

TV programmes concerning emigration provide a wealth of information for prospective emigrants and are an enjoyable source of entertainment for those who prefer to simply daydream about life abroad instead. The programmes offer valuable advice on the preparations necessary for emigration and a useful insight into potential pitfalls and how to avoid them. Even emigrants who have long since settled in their foreign home, greatly enjoy watching such programmes, as they rekindle fond memories of their own, unique experience.

The new television programme will be a collaboration between Dutch Publisher, VertrekNL and TV production company, De Beeldbrigade, whose previous shows have included Draagmoeder Gezocht (KRO), Het Blok (NET5), Waar is de Mol (SBS6) and Zee Zout Zeilen (AVRO). The title of the programme and the channel on which it is to be broadcast are yet to be confirmed, but we do know that each episode will address specific questions around emigration, helping future emigrants enjoy a smoother transition, such as: what must I consider when planning to emigrate, how can I make a living in my chosen destination and how can I get to know people, and perhaps even: what can I do if I miss typical Dutch food products?!

If you’re planning to emigrate and like the idea of being filmed throughout the entire process, from the preparatory stages right up to six months after emigration, then why not enrol on the vertrek.nl website? Where you’re heading is totally irrelevant – so, whether you plan to emigrate to Canada, Suriname or Germany, you can still take centre stage in this exciting Dutch TV show.
