Residence Permits

From March 14th, the IND has been sending temporary residence permits to British people living in the Netherlands - for a no deal Brexit. 

The IND will also be sending temporary residence permits to British people registered on a temporary registration address. Therefore we urge you to register before October 31st 2019. 

 

 

The EU and the UK have negotiated a draft withdrawal agreement (deal). This provides, for example, that you can continue to live and work in the Netherlands after Brexit. However, the British parliament has not approved this agreement. It is still not clear whether there will be a Brexit with an agreement (deal) or without (no deal). The IND is prepared for both a deal and no deal. You can find out more information about the negotiation process and interim agreements on Government.nl/Brexit.

The IND will also be sending temporary residence permits to British people registered on a temporary registration address. The IND has changed the procedure after receiving more information about temporary registration addresses from expat centres.

Registering on a permanent home address is preferred, but being registered on a temporary registration address counts as an official living adress for Brexit related manners. However, the chance that a letter does not arrive is greater at a temporary registration address.

Furthermore, it is important to turn on automatic reception for letters from the IND on mijnoverheid.nl. With this you can receive all letters from the IND digitally. You will need a DigiD for this.
