If you move to the Netherlands from abroad for 4 months or longer, you must register with the Personal Records Database (BRP) within five days of arrival. This rule applies to both European and non-European citizens. You will receive a Citizen Service Number (Burgerservicenummer - BSN) at the appointment. The ECL facilitates registrations for the municipalities of Leiden and in the near future also for Katwijk, Leiderdorp, Oegstgeest, Voorschoten and Zoeterwoude.

To register with the Municipality at the Expat Centre Leiden, please make an appointment.
