Practicalities of leaving the Netherlands

I have a Dutch bank account. Do I need to close it before I leave?

Can I get my post redirected to my new home address abroad?

It is a good idea to inform in advance about your new home address those who may correspond with you by post. However, it is unlikely that you will remember everyone who may wish to contact you. Therefore, to ensure that any important mail does not get lost (i.e. sent to your old address in the Netherlands) after the move, you should apply for any mail with your old Netherlands address to be automatically redirected to your new home address.

Postnl provides a postal redirection service as part of its relocation package. You can apply for this service online by visiting their website at: Postnl.nl/klantenservice. Please note that this website and the corresponding online form are only available in Dutch, so you may prefer to visit one of Postnl’s post offices to speak to someone in person if you are not very proficient in Dutch. Postnl does charge a fee for the forwarding service.
