One million Dutch with dual nationality

15th December 2008, Comments 0 comments

Statistics Netherlands finds three times as many dual nationals in 2008 than in 1995.

AMSTERDAM - Figures released by the Dutch statistics office, Statistics Netherlands, show that almost one million Dutch citizens now hold dual nationality.

That figure is almost three times greater than in 1995. Of that one million, nearly half are Turkish or Moroccan.

The increase is partly because, since 2003, children with a non-Dutch parent automatically become dual nationals at birth.
