How to inform us about your change of address?

Usually you don't have to pass this on to us. We will automatically receive your new address if you inform your municipality. 

If you move abroad or come to live in the Netherlands, you must also inform the municipality. You do not have to pass anything on to us.

Is your organisation relocating If so, please inform the Chamber of Commerce.

Sometimes you do have to report a change.

Choose your situation and see how you do it:

  • I want to receive my mail at an address other than my home or business address, or change my postal address to my home or business address

    For both your private and business address, you can pass on a different address to receive our mail: a postal address.

    You can do this using the form Passing on a postal address (Dutch).

    You can only use this form if you live in the Netherlands. Or if your company, foundation or association has its registered office in the Netherlands.

    You may be required to confirm your postal address

    We process your change of address within 5 working days.

    Is your new address a postal address? If so, we may ask you to confirm your postal address. You will receive a letter from us at the home or business address we currently have for you. This way, we know for sure that you are the one who requested the mailing address.

    Do you change your postal address to your residential address or business address? Then we will process your request. You will not receive a letter from us and you do not have to confirm anything. 

  • I live outside the Netherlands and I am moving outside the Netherlands

    You do not live in the Netherlands, you are moving and you continue to live outside the Netherlands?

    If so, you can report your change of address using the form ‘Notification change of address outside the Netherlands’.

    Fill in the form, print it out, sign it and send it to us. The address is stated on the form.

    As soon as we have received your notification, it will take another 3 weeks to process.

Processing a change of address takes time

In the meantime, mail may still be sent to your former address. You still have to deal with important mail such as bills (and pay them). Therefore, make sure your mail is forwarded or make arrangements with the new resident.
