Losing Dutch citizenship

If you only hold citizenship of the Netherlands, you will never automatically lose it. However, you can automatically lose your Dutch citizenship if you acquire another citizenship or if you have dual citizenship. The Government of the Netherlands can also actively revoke your Dutch citizenship.

Campaign to prevent unintentional loss of Dutch citizenship

In the toolkit 'Dubbele Nationaliteit? Raak je Nederlandse niet kwijt! ' (Dual citizenship? Don't lose your Dutch citizenship!), you will find downloadable campaign resources so you can inform others how to avoid automatically losing their Dutch citizenship.

There is also a factsheet available: Could I lose my Dutch nationality automatically? And how can I avoid this?, which explains all you need to know about losing your Dutch citizenship automatically. And how to avoid doing so.
