Moving from abroad

Are you moving to Eindhoven from abroad, or will you be staying in The Netherlands for at least 4 of the coming 6 months? Register in person within 5 days of your arrival here. You can do this at the appropriate counter at the Residents' Plaza (Inwonersplein). If your partner and/or children are moving with you, bring them with you to the Residents' Plaza.

  • Is this the first time you have moved to Eindhoven? Please make an appointment. To do so, phone 14 040 or, from outside The Netherlands, +31 40 2386000.
  • Have you previously been registered in The Netherlands and did you leave before 1994? In that case too, make an appointment by phoning 14 040 or, from outside The Netherlands, +31 40 2386000.
  • Have you previously been registered in The Netherlands and did you leave after 1994? In that case you can pop in to the Residents' Plaza without an appointment, any working day between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Is your nationality other than Dutch and are you arriving from a country which is not a member of the EU? In that case, phone the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) at 0900 - 123 4561.

Have you applied for asylum? You will not be eligible for registration in the municipal administration during the first 6 months, if you are living in an asylum seekers’ or reception centre.
