If you plan to live in The Netherlands for a long time, you have two choices: Dutch permanent residence or Dutch citizenship.
The difference between the two is that with the Dutch permanent residence, you can stay in The Netherlands indefinitely and work without needing a special work permit. However, you need to renew this permit every 5 years.
On the other hand, if you become a Dutch citizen, you officially become part of the Dutch community. This means you can get a Dutch passport, vote in Dutch elections, and even run for a position in the Dutch parliament.
But there’s a catch: If you become a Dutch citizen, you might have to give up your other nationality. The Dutch government prefers that people have only one nationality. In contrast, with Dutch permanent residence, you can keep your original nationality.
