In this case, you do not fall under the contract of withdrawal. You and your family members must meet the Dutch requirements to live in the Netherlands. For more information, visit the Website of the Immigration and Nature Service (IND). If you arrive in the Netherlands after the transition period, you do not fall under the withdrawal agreement. You must meet the Dutch requirements to live in the Netherlands. You must apply for a residency on the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) website.

Britons who leave for the first time in the Netherlands after 1 January 2021 are no longer considered EU citizens, but third-country nationals without EU/EEA or Swiss nationality. They need a residence permit while third-country nationals are subject to different rules than those applicable to EU nationals. There are exceptions for British and non-British family members who will be staying with you in the Netherlands on 1 January 2021. You are subject to the withdrawal agreement if you already have a right of residence in the Netherlands under this agreement.

Despite much speculation and agreements published following discussions with the EU, it is still impossible to say definitively what the future relationship and trade agreements between the UK and the EU will be. However, it is important for Amsterdam`s economy to maintain close relations with London and the rest of the UK, which is why the City of Amsterdam has remained in close contact with many members of the international business community to discuss the challenges and possible opportunities associated with the UK`s exit from the EU. Whatever the outcome of the negotiations, Amsterdam will keep its international perspective open to Europe and the rest of the world. Border workers are defined as British nationals who work in the Netherlands but do not live here and return to the UK at least every week. A transitional period is in place until 31 December 2020. During this period, you can continue to work as a border worker in the Netherlands, as all EU agreements and regulations remain valid for the UK. If you are subject to the withdrawal agreement, you can work as a border worker in the Netherlands after the end of the transition period. Whether you will be able to work as a border crosser in the Netherlands after 31 December 2020 depends on the agreements between the UK and the EU. The InD Brexit pages will be updated to reflect new developments. They provide, as far as possible, more information on what British nationals can expect, both in a non-agreement scenario and in the event of an agreement between Britain and the EU.
