Netherlands - UK migrants earn high wages - November 30, 2016

The central office for statistics CBS reported that more than 46 thousand UK citizens were living in the Netherlands on 1 January 2016. The majority of these first-generation British are living in the Randstad megalopolis and their wages are high in comparison to other migrants. During the past two decades, more native UK citizens have entered every year than left the country. For the first time since 2001, more than 4 thousand UK natives settled in 2015, i.e. nearly twice as many as those who returned to the UK. The report includes a comparison with other immigrants. It reveals that more often than their counterparts from Germany and Belgium and from the rest of the EU, UK citizens are found in the highest wage groups.
