How did the Dutch government handle Brexit? Have your say in a new survey


British nationals who lived in the Netherlands before Brexit are being asked to take part in an independent survey to assess the Dutch government’s handling of the issue – particularly their residency rights.

The aim is to make sure that the perspective of British nationals living in the Netherlands is taken into account in the final report which will also look at the impact on industry.

The survey, which is anonymous, focuses on the Dutch government and the IND’s handling of British nationals’ residency rights.

Everyone over the age of 18 who has British citizenship and lived in the Netherlands for at least a year after June 23, 2016 is being invited to take part.
