You can deregister a month before leaving the Netherlands and are required to indicate your date of departure. If you deregister by post and do not provide a date of departure, the date the municipality receives your written notice will be adopted as your date of departure. If you provide your notice of departure in person, without providing a date of departure, that day is considered your departure date. If your partner or child(ren) leave the Netherlands, they must also deregister.

Deregistration from your municipality's Personal Records Database is free.

Where to deregister

If you are moving abroad after living in Amsterdam, you must inform the City of Amsterdam of your departure. If you live in another part of greater Amsterdam, contact your local municipality for more information.
