Heeft mijn gast recht op een inkomen?

Does my guest have a right to income?

Yes, all individuals covered under Temporary Protection are entitled to living expenses (leefgeld). The requirement is that the person is registered in the Basic Persons Registration (Basisregistratie Personen) of a Dutch municipality. The municipality provides this allowance, which can be deposited into the guest’s bank account, a money card, or given in cash. The living expenses for people staying in private accommodation consist of three components for:

1. Food
2. Clothing
3. Extra allowance for refugees living with a host family

The amount of these components depends on the composition and size of the household. Please find additional information here.
