The integration obligation has been in force since 1 May 2020 for Turkish newcomers with asylum status and their family members. From 1 January 2022, the obligation now also applies to (family) migrants who want to come to the Netherlands for long-term residence, spiritual ministers and other migrants with Turkish nationality.
