How I can register in the Non-residents Records Database?

If you are moving to the Netherlands for no more than 4 months, you can register as a non-resident with the Personal Records Database (BRP). To do so, register with a RNI-municipality in the Non-residents Record Database (RNI). You will be given a citizen service number (BSN) once you have registered.

You will need to register in person, bring a valid identity document with you, and give your residential address in your country of origin.

Citizen service number after registration

After you have registered as a non-resident, you will be given an extract with your citizen service number (BSN). You will need this number when you contact the government, for example to ask for care or to pay taxes. There is no charge for registration.
