How to become Dutch

Jump to: navigation, search

You can become Dutch by living in the Netherlands for long enough. It's also possible to become Dutch when not living in the Netherlands, if you're married to a Dutch citizen and living in a 3rd country (so not in a country where you have citizenship).

If you were Dutch before but lost your citizenship there's an option procedure of 1 year. It requires living in the Netherlands for one year, which can be hard if you can't easily get a resident visa.
