Emigration, moving abroad
What is it?
You need to notify the municipality if you are planning to move abroad (emigration) for at least a minimum of 8 months out of the next 12 months. This period does not have to be consecutive. You then will be de-registered from your address. If you are moving abroad for a period shorter than 8 months, there is no need to notify the municipality.
Important It is not possible to receive an extract at the municipality with information about the departure the day after departing. This is only possible at one of the RNI(externe link) desks.
How does it work?
A move abroad can only be arranged online if all the inhabitants of the address move at the same time.
When there are several inhabitants registered on your address and not everybody is moving abroad, then everyone who is planning to emigrate needs to come to the municipality to notify this personally. Children under the age of 18 years in this case, have to come to the municipality as well.
Who can arrange a move abroad?
- Everyone older than the age of 16 years.
- Parents, guardians or caregivers for children under the age of 16 years.
- Parents and their adult children can arrange this for each other only when they are registered on the same address and all move at the same time.
- Spouses and registered partners can arrange this for each other under the condition that they are moving abroad together.
- The curator can notify the municipality for people that are under guardianship.
You cannot authorize someone else to arrange the emigration for you.
