First registration in the Netherlands

Are you coming to live in the Netherlands for the first time? You must then register in person with the municipality. Make an appointment with the municipality where you will be living.

Description

If you move to the Netherlands for the first time, you must register in the Personal Records Database (BRP). You register with the municipality in which you are going to live. We call this 'first registration'. You will receive a citizen service number (BSN). You will need this BSN, for example, if you want to work in the Netherlands. Or if you want to open a bank account in the Netherlands.

Have you lived in the Netherlands before, but moved abroad before October 1994? Then you must also do a 'first registration'.
