Entry in Register of Non-residents

If you will be staying in the Netherlands for less than 4 months, for work or to study for example, you can be entered in the Register of Non-Residents (RNI) in the Municipality of Eindhoven. Make an appointment to arrange this. After being registered, you will receive a Citizen Service Number (BSN). You will need this number for any contact you have with the authorities in the Netherlands.

You can also visit the Residents' Plaza without appointment on Monday 5 pm - 8 pm or on Saturday 9 am - 12 am.

Step by step

  1. Make an appointment.
  2. At the interview we will ask you about your stay in the Netherlands.
  3. We will establish your identity and check whether you already have a citizen service number (BSN).
  4. If everything is in order, we will enter your details in the Register of Non-Residents (RNI) free of charge.
  5. You will immediately be issued with a BSN and proof of registration.
