The Netherlands, also called Holland, is a great European country. The Netherlands’ open and tolerant character is very much evidenced by its hospitality towards foreigners. Throughout the centuries, refugees from other countries have found a new and safe home- land here. Although Dutch is the official language, most people also speak English, German or French. As any visitor to this charming land can attest, the Dutch truly enjoy contact with people from abroad and will make you feel at home in no time at all.
Entry to the country is guaranteed to all foreign individuals participating in an congress organized in the Netherlands, regardless of their nationality. Delegates must, of course, meet the normal require- ments. They must carry travel documents valid for an adequate period of time, have sufficient means of support, and may not considered to be a threat to the public peace, public order or national safety.
