My family and I are UK citizens and I am very likely to be moving to the Netherlands for my work, though unfortunately that is almost certainly going to happen on the wrong side of 31 October. Thus we are looking to establish legal residency in the Netherlands pre-Brexit so that we can be grandfathered in when/should Brexit take place. All advice on this matter is welcome though I have two specific questions:
In your collective experience, what exactly is needed to register with the municipality: is a longish term lease needed or can an AirBNB booking plus assurances that we are looking for something long term enough? Does my whole family (partner, infant) need to be present at the registration office or can I take all of our passports/documents in?
Note, I have contacted the municipality (Maastricht) to ask these same questions but the autoreply I got said there might be a few weeks wait...time we don't have.
