  • Get a BSN

    Every Dutch person, and everyone living, studying or working in the Netherlands, must have a BSN. This stands for Burger Service Nummer, which means Citizen Service Number. As soon as you have been registered in the Key Register of Persons (BRP), you will be issued a BSN.

  • Get DigiD

    DigiD is a way of identifying yourself when arranging matters online. This might be with the government, educational institutions, healthcare organizations or your pension fund, for example.
