The April 2020 edition of the Brexit newsletter published in English is now available.
It contains important information for UK nationals and their family members living in The Netherlands. For example, to avoid delays they should apply for a residence document to continue living, working or studying in the Netherlands after the transition period within 4 weeks of receiving an invitation. Together we can ensure that the 45,000 UK citizens living in the Netherlands receive a decision from the IND on time.
The topics in this edition are:
- Latest coronavirus measures and your application for a residence document

What the IND does for UK nationals living in The Netherlands
The IND aims to provide a decent residence solution for all UK nationals and their family members living, working and studying in the Netherlands. UK nationals living in the Netherlands should not worry about their right of residence. After Brexit, they can also continue to live, work and study here during the transition period. After the end of this period, they will need a residence document to continue living, working and studying here. In February, the IND started sending invitations to UK nationals and their family members to apply for a residence document. UK nationals who have lived in the Netherlands the longest will receive an invitation first.
