From 1 January 2022 civic integration obligation for all newcomers with Turkish nationality

From January 1, 2022, newcomers with Turkish nationality are required to integrate.

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.

Customization and guidance

The new law offers more options for customization and guidance. Civic integration should not be seen as an obstacle, but as an opportunity to participate in Dutch society.
