The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) recently clarified under which conditions British frontier workers may continue to work after 31 December 2020.

A frontier worker is someone who:

  • has the British nationality and is already working as a frontier worker in the Netherlands before 1 January 2021
  • lives in the United Kingdom or in an EU country other than the Netherlands
  • is currently carrying out real and actual work as an employee or a self employed person
  • does not pose a threat to the public order

If you meet the above conditions or if you employ frontier workers, an application ‘document Frontier Worker’ must be submitted before 1 January 2021.

It is important to submit this application as soon as possible, because arranging the necessary documents/information may take some time, such as applying for a BSN, if not available yet.
