Registering in the Non-residents Records Database (RNI)

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

If you are moving to the Netherlands for less 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. You will be given a citizen service number (BSN) once you have registered.

Registering with the municipality as a non-resident

If you are moving to the Netherlands for less than 4 months, you can register with one of 19 RNI municipalities as a non-resident in the Non-residents Records Database, which is part of the BRP.

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.
