New residents registration

If you move to the Netherlands from abroad for 4 months or longer, you must register with the Personal Records Database (BRP) within five days of arrival. This rule applies to both European and non-European citizens. You will receive a Citizen Service Number (Burgerservicenummer - BSN) after two to four weeks after registration.  You can only register when you actually relocate, not on a preview trip. It is very important that you bring the correct documents to your registration appointment. For an address change you can also contact us. Please call us to make an appointment.
