How to get rid of villagers on your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island? 

There is a rumor circulating that you can’t kick out the original members out of your island. Well, if at all that exists, you can always use your Amiibo card to do it.

Once you’ve decided which villager you are planning to get rid of, you just need not give any attention to him/her. Do not indulge yourself with them, or try to do any activity around them.

You could also try fencing their house. This will lock them out of their house, making them roam around the village and eventually leave it. 

While you do this, make sure you keep interacting with the other members of your island, who you don’t want to get rid of. While this still can’t hold back the villagers who are willingly trying to leave, you can at least be assured that you tried your best to keep them.
