Things to Note

  • We cannot assist with biometric appointments or residence permit collection. The closest IND location with these services is in the Hague
  • ​​You can only register when you actually relocate, not on a preview trip
  • We cannot do resettlement registrations (hervestiging). Your BSN is unique to you and never changes; if you previously lived in the Netherlands and then de-registered you should make an appointment with Leiden municipality
  • For an address change, please contact your local municipality
  • ​When the Netherlands is no longer your primary country of residence, you must inform your municipality. Check "Leaving the Netherlands" for details
