Netherlands: UK cross-border workers, “no-deal” Brexit

The release includes transitional rules applying until 30 June 2020, as well as a provision for cross-border workers. 

To supplement previously announced transitional rules for UK citizens and their family members who lawfully resided in the Netherlands before Brexit, there are transitional rules for UK cross-border workers in the event of a “no-deal” Brexit. The rules mean that cross-border workers will be able to continue to work in the Netherlands during the transitional period, subject to conditions, without requiring a work permit.
