1. April 2011: Exam in Dutch Embassy MORE DIFFICULT

Post by adappel » Thu Dec 30, 2010 6:58 am

Non-Western partners from Dutch citizens need to pass an exam in the Dutch Embassy before they can join their Dutch partner.
This exam is becoming extremely more difficult starting at the first of April 2011.
This is not a joke ....
The exam exists since march 2006.
Only 5% did not pass this exam untill now
With the more difficult terms for the exam it is expected that 25% will not pass the exam. This 25% has also been the political objective in 2006, but the 'target' was not met.

Dutch politicians want to reduce immigration from Non-Western countries in this way.
Because the exam in 2006 did not have the 'expected results' , the exam has been made more difficult now.

Of course the measure will have a great impact on relationships between Dutch citizens and their Non-Western partners.
