Question:(Last edited: Friday, 22 May 2020, 2:34 AM)
Deregistration: What steps should I follow to deregister from the city hall?
Before you leave the Netherlands, make sure you deregister from the Municipality in the Dutch city or town of your residence. Once you deregister, the Municipality will remove your personal details from the Municipal Personal Records Database. It will also automatically inform other government authorities of your departure. Normally you can deregister online or by post. However, do check the website of your Municipality on how or when you can deregister, or you can call them to enquire. When you deregister, it is a good idea to ask for a copy of the deregistration document as a written proof.
Besides deregistering at the Municipality, these are the things that you need to do before leaving the country.
Note: It is important to do all these practicalities to avoid being charged for any future bills, tax or insurance, as these organizations would not know that you have left the country.
