rights and core values. You are integrated if you pass the Inburgeringsexamen (basic Civic Integration Exam) or Staatsexamen NT2 (Dutch as a second language State Exam).
Who are required to integrate?
Since 2013 it has been decided that integration is people’s own responsibility.
Integration is mandatory for those who meet all conditions mentioned below:
• You are a residence permit holder between the ages of 18 and 65
• You were born outside The Netherlands or Europe
• You have a passport from a non-European Union (EU) country
• You plan to stay in The Netherlands for a long period
People who stay in The Netherlands temporarily for the purpose of study or work are not required to integrate.
Important before starting your integration:
Do you want to know more about our possibilities?
Just give us a phone call or contact us by contactform.
You are not required to integrate but you still want to learn Dutch? Of course you can do a civic integration course. A course will make it easier for you to find your way in Dutch society, for example to find a job. After passing the exam you can apply for a passport for The Netherlands, i.e. become a Dutch citizen by naturalisation.
