RNI - Registering for a job or short stay

  • Are you staying in the Netherlands for less than 4 months?
  • Do you live abroad and do you need a citizen service number (BSN in Dutch)? Is this for matters you need to arrange with the Dutch government?

In that case you can register as a non-resident. Please make an appointment via rni@alkmaar.nl mentioning for how many persons, how long you will be staying in the Netherlands, and a phone number.

You will receive a BSN. Also your data will be included in the Non-Residents Registration (RNI in Dutch).

If you are staying in the Netherlands for more than 4 months, you must register in the Key Registration of Persons (BRP in Dutch).
