Staying less than 4 months
If you are staying in the Netherlands for less than four (4) months in any six-month period, you can register with one of the 19 municipalities in the Netherlands (including Terneuzen) as a non-resident under a special registration provision for the registration of Non-Residents. (Registratie Niet-Ingezetenen, RNI)
Conditions to obtain a BSN as a non-resident:
Citizens of EU/EEA or Switzerland must have a valid passport or identity card.
Non-EU/EEA or Switzerland citizens must have a valid passport with a note/sticker in their passport or a residence permit that allows staying and working in the Netherlands. Applying for this note/sticker goes via Service Desk IND.
Note: Driver's licenses are not accepted as identity cards.
Note: If a person is registered as a non-resident and has received a BSN via the RNI and the work situation is likely to exceed the allowed 4 month period, then person must immediately register as a resident at the local municipality. The registration will be moved to from the RNI to the BRP (Municipal Personal Records Database).
