Certificates from the municipality

Quicklinks

Your municipality is able to provide several certificates to citizens who are registered in the BRP. Depending on your needs and immigration status, they may be able to provide you with some of these. So-called extracts (uittreksels) from the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) prove you are registered in your municipality, while certificates from the Civil Registry pertain to certain life events, such as marriage or the birth of a child.

Converting a foreign certificate into a Dutch certificate

When you are moving to The Hague region, you can register a foreign birth, death or marriage/partnership certificate in your Municipal Registry Office if you live in The Hague or Delft. This could be very useful if you will need an extract sometime in the future. If you want to register a foreign certificate, there are a number of conditions and you need to submit certain documents. The (foreign) documents required for registration may be older than 6 months.

  • You can only register a foreign certificate if you are (or were) a Dutch citizen or you have a permanent asylum residence permit (residence permit III or IV).
  • The foreign certificate must be drawn up according to legal regulations by the local authorities. This authority may not be a Dutch embassy or consulate.
  • Certain foreign documents, including certificates, have to be legalised. You can consult the website of the government to see which legalisation rules apply to your documents.
  • Documents from abroad need to be in Dutch, English, French or German. Otherwise they must translated into one of these languages by a sworn translator.
