              Are you having difficulties?

              Is it not working for you to apply online? Or are there special circumstances? Then you might be able to visit the emergency desk. More information and the conditions can be found under Make an appointment at the municipality.

              How long does it take?

              • Are you reporting the change in address between 4 weeks before the move and no more than 5 working days after your move? The municipality will register you on the date you indicated.
              • Are you reporting the change in address later? Then the municipality will register you on the date it received your change of address.

              Because it is extremely busy, it can take longer than usual to process your change in address. Anticipate that it can take up to 14 days before your new address is registered in the system. Would you like to see if the change has been made? Log in to MijnDenHaag using your DigiD. There you can see your personal data as they are recorded in the Personal Records Database (BRP).
