How can I request an extract from the Non-residents Records Database?

If you are registered in the Non-residents Records Database (RNI) you can request an RNI extract. Requests can be submitted by post – or in some cases online – to any of the 19 RNI municipalities in the Netherlands.


The costs of an RNI extract vary by municipality.

There are different types of extracts, such as proof of deregistration, for example. Exactly which one you need depends on what you plan to use it for. Check with the RNI municipality to make sure you get the right one.
