Will I have to comply with Dutch civic integration requirements when Britain leaves the EU?

If an agreement is concluded (‘deal’ scenario)

No, if the withdrawal agreement enters into force, you are already resident in the Netherlands and you retain your right of residence, you will not have to comply with Dutch civic integration requirements.

*Arrangements on citizens’ rights are not yet final

This answer is based on the provisions covering citizens’ rights in the withdrawal agreement. The UK government and the 27 remaining EU member states have endorsed this agreement. Now, the European Parliament and the British parliament must approve it. Only after that will the arrangements enter into force.

If no agreement is concluded (‘no deal’ scenario)

If the EU and the UK do not conclude an agreement, the Dutch government will introduce a 15-month transition period for British nationals in the Netherlands. This period will last until 30 June 2020.

British nationals who were legally resident in the Netherlands before the UK’s withdrawal will retain their right to live, study and work here. This will also apply to family members of British nationals who are not EU citizens themselves.

All British nationals and their family members will be written to at some point during the transition period by the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) and invited to apply for a residence permit. To receive this permit, British nationals will need to meet the same residency requirements as those that apply to EU citizens. This will allow all British nationals who are legally resident in the Netherlands to continue to live, study and work here. Your employer will therefore not need to apply for a work permit on your behalf.
