The rights of British citizens in the Netherlands after Brexit in case of an agreement

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. 

Below you will find an overview of the rights of British citizens and their family members in the Netherlands in case the EU and the UK reach a withdrawal agreement.

 Application procedure and fees

You will receive an invitation letter from IND between 29 March 2019 and 31 December 2020. IND recommends submitting your application only after you have received this letter. 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. The public handling fee for the national residence permit is the same fee which applies to EU-citizens (currently € 57).
