As a Dutch citizen abroad, you may again vote in the elections on 17 March 2021, as long as you are registered with the municipality of The Hague. This had to be done before 3 February 2021. If you have not yet received your vote, or if it is missing, read the instructions* below.

Voters may send their vote directly to the municipality of The Hague by letter. The ballot paper must then be received by the postal polling station in The Hague no later than 17 March 2021 at 3 p.m. (local time).

Voters in Indonesia may also send or hand in their ballot paper at the Dutch embassy in Jakarta. Then the ballot paper must be received at the embassy no later than Friday 5 March 2021. The embassy ensures that the votes are sent to The Hague by post via the diplomatic courier service as quickly as possible.

You may send your vote to the address below, or drop it off at the main entrance of the Embassy:

Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands
Attn: BRIEFSTEM Consular Department
Jl. H.R. Rasuna Said Kav S-3 | 12950 | Kuningan, Jakarta | Indonesia

Here (in Dutch) you find step by step how to send in your vote. Important: please note on the envelop that a 'BRIEFSTEM' is included so the Embassy knows what is in the envelop. This way it will be sent to The Hague with a closed envelop.

More information about voting from abroad can be found here. Any updates will also be announced through the Embassy's usual social media channels.
