Change address details in the BRP

Are your address details incorrect in the municipality’s Personal Records Database (BRP)? You can make a request to have these details changed.

  • You are a resident of The Hague.
  • Your address details are incorrect in the BRP. This specifically means your address, house number or moving date.

You can only change your address if the municipality or another organisation have made a mistake. Not if you were too late with the registration.

  • a copy of your valid form of identification (only when you make a request without logging in with DigiD)
  • proof of your address or moving date:
    • if your address or house number is incorrect: proof of your correct address or house number
    • if your moving date is incorrect: proof that you reported your move to the municipality earlier

You can request the change online. You can do this with and without DigiD.

Are you going to move? Or did you move recently but have not registered your new address at the municipality? Then you can change your details on the page Report your move.
Is somebody registered at your address who does not reside there? Request an address investigation.


Within 4 weeks you will first get an intention and then a decision on your request. Will your request take longer than 4 weeks? You will be notified about this.

  • Has your request been approved? The municipality will change the BRP right away.
  • Has your request been rejected? The municipality will not change the BRP. You can challenge this decision. The letter you receive contains information on how you can challenge the decision.
  • Have you made the request online? Then you will also get your decision online. You can indicate in your application that you would prefer to receive the decision by post.
  • You can make a safe copy of your identity document with your mobile telephone or tablet using the KopieID app. Read more on the website of the Dutch government(External link).
  • Do your personal data appear incorrectly, and you have tried everything to correct it? You can submit a request to the Contact Centre for Errors in Government Registrations (MFO)(External link). This is a national contact centre.

Would you like to change your personal data in the BRP rather than your address details? Do this on the page Change personal data in the BRP.
