The Welcome app tries to make newcomers feel at home as soon as possible. A vital part of belonging somewhere is social contact. Newcomers can meet Dutch locals through the lunch function. Locals that wish to support newcomers can organize a lunch through our app.

Asking and answering questions

A community of experts and experienced Dutch locals confidentially answer all the questions that newcomers have. OpenEmbassy runs this question portal. OpenEmbassy consults policy makers and municipalities with the extracted knowledge from frequently asked questions. The Welcome app thus has a positive effect on the integration system in the Netherlands.
