The Municipality of The Hague is responsible for a number of national tasks for the whole of the Netherlands. You can thus apply here for proof that you were deregistered from the Netherlands before 1 October 1994 or for a copy of a personal record card from the settlement register (vestigingsregister).

With the proof of deregistration, the Dutch government declares that you were deregistered from the Dutch population register before 1 October 1994. You need this document, for example, if you want to renew your Dutch driving licence or travel document.

Please note: you can request a ‘deregistration from the Netherlands’ as of 1 October 1994 from the Municipality of The Hague or at 1 of the other 18 municipalities which maintain the Non-residents Records Database (RNI).

You can request the proof of deregistration online.
