How does it work?

              • Are you moving within The Hague? Are you not yet able to be registered at your new address? Then you can provide an alternative address. You can do this at 1 of the city district offices.
              • Is the person whose address you are using going to move? Change your alternative address. Read more about this in alternative address.
