Registration and residence
If you have a temporary accommodation in Aalsmeer it is important to register in the Basic Registration of Persons (Basis Registratie Personen, BRP) of the municipality.
Registration with the municipality
If you are temporarily staying in the Netherlands it is important that you register in the Basic Registration of Persons (Basis Registratie Personen, BRP) of the municipality. Once you have a Citizen Service Number (Burgerservicenummer, BSN) you can qualify for facilities such as medical care and education. To register a minor, we need the permission of the guardian.
To that end, you need to make an appointment by phone (0297) 38 75 75 with the municipality (migration department) of Aalsmeer.
For additional information please visit the website of the National Office for Identity Data (Rijksdienst voor identiteitsgegevens, RvIG): Registration of persons from Ukraine in the Basic Registration of Persons (BRP) (English version not yet available). After registration in the BRP you will immediately obtain a BSN.
If you are registered with the municipality of Aalsmeer and you have a BSN number, you can make an appointment with the IND to pick up a proof of legal residence, which is mandatory. With a residence sticker you can prove that you are allowed to stay and work in the Netherlands as long as the European Temporary Protection Directive is in force. The sticker or pass is valid through March 4, 2024. This sticker or pass is only valid in the Netherlands. Please take into account that it is not a travel document.
Are you leaving the Netherlands and applying for protection in another country of the EU? If so, your temporary protection in the Netherlands will come to an end.
Make an appointment
You can make an appointment to retrive this pass or proof of legal residance on the refugee portal. For additional information about who and what you will have to bring with you to the appointment, among other things, please see the IND website about Ukraine.

With a biometric passport, you can travel freely to the European Union without a visa, and you are allowed to stay for 90 days. This period may be extended if necessary. Additional information can be found at the website of the Government of the Netherlands (Rijksoverheid): Arrival, registration and accommodation of refugees from Ukraine (English version not yet available).
