New civic integration law in effect 1 January 2022

Posted on: January 7, 2022

The new Civic Integration law 2021 has gone into effect on 1 January 2022 and gives the municipalities a greater role in guiding civic integration. For many people who are doing a voluntary integration (for example, to apply for permanent residence or Dutch citizenship), the most important change is that the Dutch language level has increases to B1 from A2. If someone has not yet begun their integration process, the level remains at A2.
