Registration with town hall
All foreign students staying in the Netherlands for a period longer than four months have to register with the municipal register (gemeentelijke basis administratie) in the Dutch town where they temporarily live.
You will need the following documents for the registration:
- A valid passport or valid identity card
- A legalised birth certificate
- Rental agreement or a proof of your accommodation
- Resident permit (non EU/EEA students)
Representatives of the Vlissingen town hall will be present at your welcome day.
Important note: EU students have to register with the municipal register before 1 October to be eligible for the normal EU-students tuition fees (1835 Euros). If you register with the municipal register after 1 October, HZ will have to apply higher tuitions fees, namely 7950 Euros. Furthermore, it is important to know that a holiday home is not considered to be a permanent address. Therefore, the municipal register will not consider it as a valid address for registration.
