Registering a birth in the Netherlands

If you have just had a new baby, you must register the birth. This applies to all children born in the Netherlands. You must register the birth within 3 days in the municipality where they were born. The mother, father or the mother's female partner (duomoeder) can register the birth.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Eindhoven.

Birth registration

Inform the municipality directly of the birth of your child. You can do so:


At the service desk

You can come to the counter at City Hall (Stadhuisplein 1, 5611 EM in Eindhoven) every Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. without an appointment to register the birth in person.
