2. Make an appointment with AMP

Before we open your bank account, we need to check your information. We do this to help eliminate fraud. Once the application has been approved, you will receive an email from our partner AMP Group within 3 working days. This email contains a link to an appointment planner. You can choose when, where and at what time AMP Group will come to check your identity. You can change the appointment up to 24 hours before the appointment.

3. Prepare for the appointment

Make sure you attend the appointment with AMP Group in person. Nobody else is permitted to hand over your identity document. Make sure you have your identity document ready so that the appointment does not take longer than necessary. AMP Group will check the identity document and make a copy.

  • Dutch identity document (identity card, driving licence or passport) 
  • Residence permit (type I, IV) 
  • European identity card 
  • International passport (except United States passport)

Like all other banks, we are legally obliged to verify your identity and to check that you can become our client. This obligation is laid down in the Dutch Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act (Wwft). In doing so, we help prevent money laundering and terrorist financing.
