Asking a question on Twitter

You might not find the answer to your question on the Government.nl website. In that case, you may ask a question on Twitter.

It is extremely busy at the moment. Please be aware that it will take longer than usual before we can respond to your inquiry.

Response to your question on Twitter

We are online from Monday to Friday between 8.00 am and 8.00 pm. 

In some cases we will ask you to contact us by phone or email. This may be because Twitter is not a suitable medium for answering the question, or simply because the answer is too long for a tweet.

We may refer you to another organisation if they are better able to answer your question, in which case we will provide you with their contact details.
