Edition 68 May 2014

Spain VS Holland

The Netherlands will play their first match in the 2014 World Cup against Spain,
Friday 13th of June at 03:00 PM.
As an "Away" game, the Netherlands will play in their blue jerseys,
but that should not stop the fans from ensuring that Fado Irish pub will turn Orange for the day.
Heineken has reduced the price of their beer by $1.00 and by presenting your
Atlanta Holland Club or your Netherlands American Chamber of Commerce SE
membership card before placing your first order you will receive

10 % discount on your bar Bill.

For the first time you will be able to order your very own Frikandel at Fado
and not only watch the Dutch team take revenge for the 2010 World Cup,
but enjoy the most favorite Dutch snack at the same time.



Dutch Consulate closes in 12/31/2015

We received an announcement from the Netherlands Embassy in Washington
that due to budget cuts, the Dutch Parliament decided to close a large number of
Consular posts around the world and to our regret, announced that the
Honorary Consulate in Atlanta will be closing on December 31st, 2015.

After this date, all Dutch passport holders will have to travel to Washington DC,
a Consulate General or to the Netherlands to renew their passport.

The announcement does not include any information regarding the visa application,
but if the the consulate closes no visa applications can be handled in Atlanta. 

We believe that closing the Netherlands Consulate in the city with the worlds busiest airport
is not only shortsighted but will have a major impact on the business between
the Netherlands and a large number of Georgia based companies that have employees
who are required to obtain a valid visa prior to a trip to the Netherlands.

If your company will be effected by the closure of the Atlanta Honorary
Consulate please write an email or letter to the members of the Dutch Parliament.
