Brexit – Dutch authorities sends temporary residence permit to UK nationals in the Netherlands
To ensure that UK nationals and their family members may remain living in the Netherlands legally in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the IND has started to send temporary residence permits as of March 13, 2019.
In this manner UK nationals and their family members living in the Netherlands can stay in the Netherlands legally after the Brexit and thus do not have to leave the Netherlands. Within the coming 2 weeks UK nationals who are registered in the Personal Records Database should receive their temporary residence permits. These permits, however, will not be issued to UK nationals with a Dutch permanent national residence permit or who also hold the nationality of another EU/EER country or Switzerland as Brexit has no influence on the Dutch residence rights of these individuals.
Based on these permits, UK nationals may also work in the Netherlands without a work permit. The permits shall be valid during a period as of March 29, 2019 up to and including June 30, 2020. When travelling to and from the Netherlands, UK nationals may need to show their permits to demonstrate their lawful residence in the Netherlands.
