What personal data is recorded in the Non-residents Records Database?

Language selection:English

You can check what personal data of yours is recorded in the Non-residents Records Database (RNI) on MijnOverheid or at any of the 19 RNI municipalities in the Netherlands.

Data in the RNI

The RNI contains the following data about you:

  • name
  • date of birth
  • place of birth
  • sex
  • nationality
  • address outside the Netherlands
  • temporary residential address in the Netherlands (if applicable)
  • contact details
  • details about your residence permit
  • citizen service number (BSN)

The moment you move abroad, some information in the RNI will no longer be updated. This relates to information that changes after you have moved abroad. These details are only updated again when you re-register in the Netherlands. This concerns, for example, your marital status or your children.

Viewing your data online on MijnOverheid

On MijnOverheid you can check what personal data of yours is recorded in the RNI. Log in to the website using your DigiD. Once you have logged in click ‘Identiteit’. You can then click through to your personal data.

If you do not have a DigiD, you can apply for one.

Checking your personal data via an RNI municipality

If you are not able to view your data online, contact one of the 19 RNI municipalities to find out whether you are registered in the RNI and how.

Ensure that your details in the RNI are correct

Have your details changed? Then please report the changes to the RNI, so that Dutch (government) organisations can still contact you.

How do I change my details in the RNI?

What to do if your situation changes

If your situation changes, you will often need to change your details with one or more Dutch government organisations.
