Rotterdam Expat Centre provides a one-stop-shop service for international newcomers in the Rotterdam Area. In order to use Rotterdam Expat Centre for municipal registration you have to complete an online form to request an appointment.
To make things as easy for you as possible, we have drawn-up a step-by-step plan.
SELECT THE LENGTH OF YOUR STAY
This is about the total duration of your stay in the country, it does not matter how long you stay at your Corporate Housing Factory address.
Are you coming to the Netherlands for less than 4 months? Then you can apply for a citizen service number (BSN) when you register as a non-resident of the Netherlands in the Register Niet Ingezetenen (RNI). Unfortunately, you cannot make an appointment at The Rotterdam Expat Centre for this registration. You can find more information on the website of the Municipality of Rotterdam .
If you are staying in the Netherlands longer than 4 months you can book your appointment at Rotterdam Expat Centre. During this appointment you will receive your BSN through the municipal registration and/or residence permit from the IND and/or will provide biometrical information to the IND. Go to the next step.
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
Open the website of Rotterdam Expat Centre and click “Make an appointment”.
