Netherlands: Ministers decide to get tough on dual nationality, this is also applicable for the Dutch’s.
A decision was made on Friday the 2 of March 2012 by the Dutch ministers to press ahead with the legislation aimed at decreasing the number of people with dual nationality, despite extensive disapproval.
According to the legislation, everyone who becomes Dutch or wants to become a Dutch citizen has to give up their original nationality if legally possible. On the other hand, Dutch nationals who take a second nationality will also automatically lose their Dutch passports.
New Dutch nationals will also have a family income of at least the minimum wage and show that they have at least two years work experience or have some sort of professional qualification.
