Reporting a change in your personal information to the Dutch government from abroad

If you live outside the Netherlands and there is a change in your situation, you usually have to report this to one or more Dutch government organisations. Changes may have certain consequences for you, such as the amount of benefit you receive.

Reporting a change of address

If you move, you only need to report your change of address once. This is because all Dutch government organisations use the address at which you are registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP). You can view this information on MijnOverheid.

Reporting other changes from abroad

You should report other changes directly to the government organisations you have dealings with. Inform them, for example, if there is a change in your marital status, if you become a parent, or if you and your partner begin living together. You should also report any changes in your salary or bank account number.
