Brexit permit update

Posted on: September 8, 2020

British people living in the Netherlands who have registered in the municipal BRP after 1 August 2020 do not need to wait for an invitation letter before applying for their post-Brexit residence permits, says the IND.

Previously, the advice from the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service was that British citizens should wait until they receive an invitation to apply for their permit. Now the IND says that it has sent out application letters to all British citizens who were registered before 1 August 2020.

If you have not yet received your IND letter, but were registered in the BRP before 1 August 2020, you should now apply for your Brexit permit. You need to apply before 31 December 2020 in order to live in the Netherlands legally from 1 January 2021 onwards.
