Municipal Offices in South Holland

Local municipal and district administrative offices in The Hague, Rotterdam, Leiden and surrounding areas of Zuid-Holland, Netherlands


The provinces of South Holland is divided into 60 municipalities known as gemeenten. Each Gemeente has a main city hall (stadhuis) and sub-municipal administrative offices (stadsdeelkantoren). Residents visit these offices for a variety of reasons including filing an intent to marry, adding a person to a household, collecting a new driving license and registering a grievance. Every person living in the Netherlands must be registered with their gemeente in which they reside.

Immigration office

Applications for residency in the Netherlands must be made at the Immigration & Naturalisation Department (Immigratie en Naturalisatiedienst or IND).

Note: Applying for residency is not the same as registering with the local gemeente although it is a related process. For more information, see Registration in the Netherlands.

There are eight Immigration Department offices in the Netherlands. The office serving The Hague is:
