Are you abroad for 8 months or longer within a period of 1 year? This is called an emigration. The 8 months do not have to be consecutive. If you go abroad twice for 4 months within 1 year, that is also an emigration. When you emigrate , you deregister. You do this maximum 5 days before you leave abroad.
You can report your emigration online or during an appointment at the town hall.
In verband met technische problemen is het op dit moment niet mogelijk om een digitale aanvraag te doen. Er wordt gewerkt aan een oplossing. Mogelijk kan dit nog enkele dagen duren. Als uw aanvraag niet kan wachten plan dan een afspraak in. Excuses voor de overlast.
What do you need?
You inform us of your move abroad digitally. To do this, log in with your DigiD code. You need:
- the names and dates of birth of family members who emigrate with you;
- your new address;
- the date of emigration.
Is it not possible for you to report your move digitally? Then make an appointment at town hall (in Dutch). Make sure you bring a valid passport, identity card or driver's license.
- Is your departure date more than 5 days in the future? Then inform us of your departure at a later time. We deregister you from the date of your emigration. If your date of departure is in the past, we will use the date of declaration as the date of departure.
- We also pass on your departure to other government agencies.
- Do you not have an address abroad? Then you provide the address where you are staying. For example, the address of friends of relatives with whom you are staying or the hotel where you are staying.
- Are you going on a world trip? Then provide the address of your first place of residence.
- Are you abroad for less than 8 months? Then you should not report this. If you don't return to your address in the Netherlands after your trip, then you can request a short address (in Dutch).
