If you plan to stay abroad for more than 8 months within a period of 1 year, not necessarily continuously, you must inform the municipality of your emigration. This also applies if you return to your home country (deregister).

What you need to know

  • If you are going to live in Groningen again within 8 months, you can request an alternative address.
  • You can only report a move for yourself and family members living with you. Read all the possibilities on government.nl.
  • You can visit our office on the day you leave or no more than 5 days beforehand.
  • Will family members stay behind at your home address? Everyone who is moving must come to the counter of the municipality in person.
