Go Dutch?

Similarly, Dutch passport holders who wish to adopt another nationality have to make the same choice: go foreign or stay Dutch. Exceptions are made in some cases, including for those who marry a Dutch national.

State Secretary for Asylum and Migration Affairs Mark Harbers said that the government would first look at the possibility of allowing dual or multiple nationality for first-generation immigrants and emigrants, but would then consider forcing subsequent generations to choose only one.

The proposals come at a particularly pertinent time for nearly 90,000 British expats who are still very much in the throes of Brexit. A small fraction of these have already decided to opt for Dutch nationality, despite fears of losing their right to reside in the UK.

The preliminary plans, have come under criticism from many expats, including Netherlands wealth management clients, who feel that they do not go far enough.

“The big concern here is the status of our children,” one expat told press. “I get reactions from worried Dutchies all over the world who fear their children will be forced to make a choice between two nationalities.”
