Open Forums for UK Nationals in the Netherlands
The British Embassy is holding open forums across the Netherlands to update UK Nationals living, working and studying here.
The Dutch government and municipalities (gemeentes) support these forums, joining the panels and answering questions about the impact of the UK leaving the EU. UK Nationals have rights and responsibilities when living in the Netherlands. One consistent piece of advice the Dutch government has given is ensuring you are registered with your gemeente (local municipality), using your current address. The Dutch government is planning to write to UK Nationals on or near the 29 March 2019.
The meetings provide an opportunity to update you on the latest developments as the UK prepares to leave the EU.
Previous open forums
