about us

Tulipán Relocations is offering relocation / immigration assistance in Spain to private persons and companies. With our Basic Package Service we are able to assist clients in every place in Spain. Our VIP Service is offered in Malaga, Granada and Almeria up to Alicante. This package is especially suitable for those who do not want to spend time on the relocation paperwork and want to turn everything over to Tulipán Relocations.



Tulipan Relocations was founded in 2011 by Stefania van Lieshout. Her own expatriate experience had been the source of inspiration to start a company specialised in support for expats and emigrants. From September 2015 until March 2017 Tulipan Relocations was managed by Margreeth van Goor. She worked already for the company on a regular basis and knew all the ins and outs of a succesfull relocation. Since April 2017 Tulipan Relocation is managed by Cees Cornelissen and Beatriz Arias.

Our partners in financial services

Tulipán Relocations regulates as much as possible, but not everything. Sometimes, for practical reasons, mostly because it involves tasks for a specialist. For optimal service, we cooperate with reliable and internationally oriented partners as DKV, Abanca, Banco Sabadell and several other insurers and banks.

Also a certified translator and notary belong to our regular circle of specialists. They work on demand, at the moment when they are needed. That way, we save time and money, but we guarantee consistent quality.
