Hi all! I have been trying to do all kinds of research online but haven't had any luck with clear answers, everything is confusing and letting me down. So a little but about myself: I am a U.S citizen, 19 years old. i recently took a backpacking trip with two other friends after graduating high school. But after our 90 days was up, we had to go back home, all except for one friend who actually ended up staying and moving to amsterdam (she fortunately has dutch citizenship). Anyways, i really want to move to amsterdam as a new cultural experience, to travel and maybe end up going to school here (i just graduated high school last june) I understand some of the most important steps when moving to amsterdam, from aquirring a BSN, setting up a bank account, having health insurance and a place to live (i plan to live with my friend who has an apartment) is this in anyway possible? to move here at 19, no college education or high skilled job experience? (although i do have quite a bit of money saved up, so that is good i suppose) What visa would i have to apply for, to both work and live here? Thanks xx
