The Magpies have snapped up the 17-year-old keeper on a free transfer, as he had not penned professional terms with ADO Den Haag.
Krul, who helped Holland to the final of this year's Euro Under-17 Championship in May, has signed a three-year deal at St James' Park.
The youngster has revealed he always wanted to play in The Premiership after following the league closely growing up in Holland.
"I'm very happy; it's a fantastic move for me," explained Krul to the club's official website. "To play in England has always been a dream.
"When I was a young boy I always used to say I wanted to come and play in England, because The Premiership is very popular in Holland.
"I have been looking around St James' Park and it is a very beautiful stadium. There are so many great players at Newcastle."
