A registration appointment directly with the municipality is free of charge. 
A registration appointment with Expat Centre Leiden incurs a service fee. This is because we provide a 30-minute introductory conversation and a welcome bag, with helpful information such as our Expat Essentials guide. You may also find it is possible to book an appointment sooner with the Expat Centre Leiden. Many employers pay the service fee on behalf of their international employees.

 The applicable fees are (additional to municipal registration/BSN)     Excl. VAT    Incl. VAT   
 First family member  € 50,00  € 60,50  
 Partner  € 25,00  € 30,25  
 Child  € 12,50  € 15,13  

 *Partners and children can only make use of the discount when they register at the same time as the first family member.

In the process of making the appointment, payment options iDeal, PayPal or Credit card are offered. Companies that hire or guide multiple people per year, and meet our criteria, can contact us at info@expatcentreleiden.nl to recieve quarterly invoices.
