Notifying the municipality when you move home
Are you moving home within the Netherlands? If so, notify the new municipality where you are going to live of your move. The new municipality will register you at your new address. You do not need to deregister from your old municipality.
The move can be notified by:
- anyone aged 16 or older;
- cohabiting spouses / civil partners on behalf of each other;
- the parent, guardian or caregiver on behalf of minor children;
- parents on behalf of adult children living with them;
- adult children on behalf of parents living with them;
- the conservator on behalf of a person placed under a conservatorship;
- an authorised representative.
You must notify the new municipality where you are going to live that you are moving home. You must inform it of your new address no later than 4 weeks before the moving date, or within 5 days after the moving date.
Contact your new municipality for more information.
This is how it works for you
Here is some information from your municipality.
Changing adress in the Netherlands
You must report a change of address to the municipality if you relocate. If you will be settling in Hengelo, you must indicate your change of address at the municipality at Hengelo. Should you relocate to another municipality, you will have to register there. In that case, de-registering with your former municipality of residence will be automatic.
If you will be relocating abroad, you must report this to the municipality. You may do this as early as five days prior to your departure. But you may not report your relocation earlier than this.
Settling from abroad
If you are relocating to live in the Netherlands, you will need to register with the relevant municipality. You must do this person at the counter of the Publieksplein within five days of your arrival. This will entail a first-time registration in the Netherlands if you have never lived here or if you emigrated prior to 1 October 1994. If you also wish to register your family members to live in the Netherlands, they must accompany you to the Publieksplein.
