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.

This is how it works for you

Your (future) place of residence falls under:
Informatie:

Here is some information from your municipality.

Report your move

Please note: you can notify the municipality when you move house only if you live in the Netherlands and are already registered with a municipality.

Please note: Are you going to move within The Hague or to The Hague? Report your change of address to the municipality online. Are you moving from The Hague to another municipality in the Netherlands? Then you don't report your change of adress here. You only have to report the move to the municipality in your new place of residence.
