Q&A Where can I apply when I am not registered?

Where can I apply for a certificate of conduct when I’m not registered in the Municipal Personal Record Database (BRP)?

If you are not registered in the BRP, you should apply directly to Justis for your certificate.

Only when you’re not registered in a Dutch municipality, you can submit your application directly to the COVOG department.

In that case, you will have to submit your complete application to: vog.np.rni@justis.nl (size must not exceed 10MB).

How to complete your application:
You can only attach one application per e-mail in a PDF file.

Please send us the following documents:

  • A completed application form (all 5 pages in PDF);
  • A copy of your valid passport or ID;
  • A proof of the payment of the fee, which is €41,35;
  • When someone else is submitting your application on behalf of you, you will need to attach a completely filled in and signed authorization form. In addition, the authorized person will need to attach a copy of their valid ID-card or passport.

When the interested party is not able to fill in and sign section 2 of the application form, you will have to provide a document demonstrating your actual need for a certificate of conduct (a letter, an e-mail or content from a specific web page, for example). Subsequently, you can fill in the form sections 2.1, 2.2 and section 2.4A OR section 2.4B yourself. Without the name of the organization, the purpose of the application and the applicable screening aspects OR one screening profile, your application will be put on hold. In that case, we will ask you to provide us with the missing information.

You will need to pay the processing fee before submitting the application.
