Majority opposed to dual nationality
More than half of all adult Dutch citizens are opposed to dual nationality. Three in five people aged18 and older believe that when a person acquires Dutch nationality they should give up their old one.
A survey conducted by the Dutch statistics office shows that opposition against dual nationality is strongest among the less-well educated and those over the age of 45. Last year, there were 1.1 million people in the Netherlands holding at least one nationality in addition to their Dutch nationality.
