1. De-register from the municipal database.
You should de-register from the municipal database within 5 days of leaving the Netherlands. You can de-register in one of three ways:
Please note that if you choose method “c”, you will not have proof that you de-registered. This may be important later so we actually advise using either “a” or “b”.
If you remain illegally in the Netherlands, the AVIM (police) or Marechaussee can impose a return decision. The return decision may state that you have to leave within 4 weeks, but it could also state that you have to leave the Netherlands immediately. You can also get an entry ban for Europe. This does not apply to EU/EEA citizens and their family members. See this link for additional information.
