European problem with .eu domain renewal

There is a French registrar netim.com. I have several domains registered there, including a very valuable .eu domain for me. A few days they sent me this letter (auto-translated into English):

"You have registered .eu, .eu or .ευ domain names, and we must inform you that due to changes in the rules requested by the European Commission, it is now prohibited to use a proxy service.

These changes will take effect on 13.10.2022, when EURid (responsible for the .eu registry) will introduce its new rules and conditions.
We invite you to update the registrant details so that it is:
- A person who is a resident of an EU member state*
- A person who has the citizenship of one of the EU member states*.
EURid reserves the right to check and delete your domain name at any time after October 13, 2022, if you do not comply with the conditions.
If you cannot comply with these conditions, we advise you to set up URL and email redirection to another domain name."


I'm not an EU resident. Maybe next year I will be. Here's not sure what to do here. Try to take the domain to a new registrar like Godaddy or a Russian one like reg.ru? Or try to write a false data?

How brave you are! Just admired and amazed, you are our hero.  ;D 
The key word here is "verification".
Can you withstand verification? Do you have the firepower?  ;)

If not, move it.

Based on the letter, the problem is that the new rules are introduced by the registry, not the current registrar.
That is, the new registrar will have to meet the same conditions before the registry and also make you confirm the same items.

Guess jr.

Then only nja.la, I guess.

They provide proxies in the EU, VPNs of all sorts, but I suspect that you can lose domains too. This is my strictly personal opinion.

That is, it is better to find a person resident in the European Union and put his data in the details of the domain?
And how, in this case, is the verification?

The .eu has always had a requirement that the owner of the domain be located in the European Union. What they're writing about is a tightening. Now you can't register domains through proxies.
Accordingly, you have to find a friend who you trust 100% and register the domain in his name. It will be his domain in full.

Check identity and address, you may need to attach supporting documents.  That is, it must be a person who will be willing to bother, and with whom you have a good relationship.

Some registrars, whose services, say, are resold, do have a certain period of paid domain name restoration. And there are some exotic zones in which there are rules on the terms of extension that no one knows about.
Most gTLD domains, after the end of the payment period, usually within 30 days, still have the opportunity to renew the domain name at the standard price.
In exotic zones, there are no 30 days, for example:
.de — you need to have time to extend it 1 day before the end of the payment
.es — in 7 days
.eu — in 2 days
.me — in 2 days
.us — for 1 day
, etc.

It is quite possible that there are other similar zones where an extension at the standard price is possible UNTIL the end of the expired date in a few days, but no later than the expired date.
And yes, in these exotic zones, the cost of restoring overdue payments really costs from 50u.e and higher.
The price tag is set by the registrar (+ the reseller can throw it on).
