The rights of British citizens in the Netherlands after Brexit in case of a no-deal

Note: The EU has agreed to a ‘flextension’ of Brexit: a flexible extension from 31 October 2019 until 31 January 2020. The UK will have the option of leaving the EU earlier if the ratification and consent procedure have been completed in both the United Kingdom and the European Parliament before 31 January 2020. 

The Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) made known what the rights of British citizens and their family members in the Netherlands will be in case of a no-deal. We give you an overview:

Application procedure and fees

If you need to apply for a national residence permit, you will receive an invitation letter from IND during the transition period. In preparation, please make sure that you are correctly registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP) of your municipality, otherwise you may not receive an invitation. IND will send out the letters in stages. The longer you have been registered in the BRP, the earlier you will receive an invitation. The IND will invite family members in one household at the same time. The public handling fee for the national residence permit is the same fee that applies to EU-citizens if they file an application for a permanent residence permit (currently € 57 for adults and €30 for children under 18).
