Impact of Brexit on the rights of British citizens in the Netherlands

The European Union and the United Kingdom have reached a provisional agreement on the rights of British citizens in the EU (including those who live in the Netherlands). Their rights will remain more or less the same after Brexit.

The European Commission has published Q&As about the rights of UK citizens in the EU after Brexit. Their rights are included in the draft withdrawal agreement that the EU and UK intend to sign. The EU, the European Parliament and the UK parliament still have to approve that agreement. It will only take effect when they have done so.

What can I do now to protect my right to stay?

The UK and the EU are still negotiating Brexit. So if you are a British citizen living in the Netherlands, it is not yet clear what you should do to be able to stay after Brexit.

Go to the website of the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) to find out what the provisional agreement means for you as a British citizen in the Netherlands after Brexit. And to find out what you can do now to protect your right to stay.
