I am part way through moving from the UK to the Netherlands and now caught up in a catch-22 situation. I have got my residency in NL approved, and have done the biometric testing, but I am in the UK now and need to be in NL to have my residency permit delivered to my current house there. I know that I have to have a PCR test to get into the country but I can find very little information on being allowed to leave the UK from tier 4. I can only see "work reasons" on the Gov UK site. Is being a Dutch resident sufficient - I have the paper work but not an official permit.
I need to go to NL to get my residency permit, and also sell the house I have there and buy another one. House sales seems to be permitted within the UK movement rules,but is that acceptable for international travel - and how do I prove it?
