The website Rijksoverheid.nl is the joint website of the 11 ministries . Ministries are engaged in legislative proposals , rules and policy plans. At Rijksoverheid.nl we inform you about this. For example, we announce if an important bill has been sent to the Lower House. And if the law is adopted, we explain to Rijksoverheid.nl what the law means to you.
For example, you can find answers to these questions at Rijksoverheid.nl: What is the minimum wage, when do I have a right to rent allowance or what do I do in an emergency abroad? But also: how does the government stimulate renewable energy or what does the government do against domestic violence?
Is there any information from other authorities at Rijksoverheid.nl?
No, you do not find information from other governments at Rijksoverheid.nl. All information is from the ministries. For example, you will not find information from municipalities here. Or of implementing organizations falling under ministries. For example, the Educational Services Department (DUO), the Tax Office or the Rijkswaterstaat. They have their own websites. Rijksoverheid.nl helps you on the way to information from these organizations. Rijksoverheid.nl also refers you to government sites on certain themes.
