Are you living in the Netherlands, but you have another nationality and you would like Dutch citizenship? There are two ways of doing that:
 

  • By way of the option procedure: a short, simple procedure that takes 3 months.
  • By way of naturalisation: This procedure takes a maximum of 1 year to complete.
