Expecting a baby in the Netherlands? Be sure to register your child with the city and to apply for a residence permit if neither you nor your partner is Dutch.
In the Netherlands, your child must be registered within 3 days of the birth. You, your partner or a person present at the birth must do so in person at a city district office.
If you and your partner are not Dutch, you will also have to apply for a residence permit for your child. You can do so via the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND).
