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, Katwijk, Leiderdorp, Oegstgeest, Voorschoten and Zoeterwoude. Please note that ECL is charging fees for services provided.
