Non EU citizens
After approval of the immigration formalities and arrival in the Netherlands, registration will have to take place. Registration at both the immigration authorities and Town Hall is mandatory for non EU nationals. In many cases, combined registration will be possible in one of the Expat Centers that are located throughout the Netherlands. If this is not possible, we will coordinate and (if agreed upon) accompany a visit to the immigration service desk (IND) and to the local authority office.
EU citizens who plan to stay in the Netherlands for more than 4 months need to register at their local Town Hall (or ExpatCenter). We will schedule and (if agreed) accompany the appointment.
After the registration, the BSN (social fiscal number) will be issued. Depending on the place where the registration took place, the BSN will be issued right away or this will take up to a couple of weeks. A BSN is required in order to be able to pay a salary, take out (medical) insurances, or other contracts, e.g. a mobile phone contract.
