Hi @James34 :)

I'm not an expert on this topic, yet I did a little bit of research about it. This is what I found: Refugees in the EU are allowed to travel to other countries for a maximum of 90 days per half-year. But you are neither allowed to work there nor are you entitled to get social benefits. If you accept a job offer and start to work, it’s illegal.

However, you can move and work somewhere else (for example in Germany) after having lived in the Netherlands for 5 years.

I found these information in this article: https://www.welt.de/politik/deutschland/article159199321/Warum-anerkannte-Fluechtlinge-unbedingt-nach-Deutschland-wollen.html

All the best,
