Am I eligible for a Dutch passport?

A Dutch passport can only be issued to a Dutch national. You can find more information about the ways in which a person can acquire Dutch nationality on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Dutch nationality law has changed a number of times over the years and nationality issues can be quite complicated.

If you are living in the UK and would like the Dutch embassy in London to investigate whether or not you are a Dutch national or can apply for Dutch nationality, please download and complete the assessment form. The non-refundable processing fee for a nationality enquiry amounts to £100. Please send an email to [email protected] for the payment instructions.

The completed assessment form with all supporting documents and proof of payment of the processing fee should be sent by post to the Dutch Embassy. Please note that further information and documents may be required.

The Embassy aims to process your enquiry in one to three months. However, as nationality enquiries can be very complicated and time-consuming, processing your assessment form may take longer.
