Municipality of Bunnik: deregistering from the municipality in the event of a long stay outside the Netherlands

You emigrate if you are abroad for at least 8 months. This period does not have to be consecutive. You can report your move abroad in two ways: online or by appointment.

Who will report the move

  • Any person who is 16 years of age or older
  • Parents or guardians for children under the age of 16
  • Pass it on for each other if you live at the same address
  • Parents and their adult child(ren)
  • Spouses or registered partners

Please note: you can report that you are moving outside the Netherlands only if you live in the Netherlands and are registered with a municipality.

You must bring your ID.

  • Are you moving outside the Netherlands on your own? If so, you can report your departure online.
  • Is your entire family moving outside the Netherlands? If so, you must report your departure to the municipality in writing or at its service desk.


You can report your departure online on the day of your move. You need your DigiD to do this.

At the service desk

Do you want to report the departure of you and your family at the service desk? First make an appointment on the website. Bring a valid form of identification to your appointment.

You must specify your new address at the appointment, if already known. You must always specify the country in which you will be living.

You can report the departure of the following people at the same time as you report your own:

  • your spouse;
  • your civil partner;
  • your children;
  • your parents.

These persons must be registered with you at the same address.

Do you have a samenlevingscontract (cohabitation agreement)? If so, you and your partner must report the departure outside the Netherlands separately.

Reporting a move is free of charge.

  • Reporting by email: 5 working days.
  • Reporting at the service desk: processed immediately by the municipality.
