We offer a full range of banking services to meet your individual needs. If you decide to use us for your day-to-day banking, please make sure you read the information on this page before visiting one of our branch offices.


To open an account, you will need to show some form of identification: 

  • A valid passport, a Dutch driving licence or an identity card and/or residence permit. We can only accept ID cards from the following countries as a valid means of identification: Belgium, Germany, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Austria, Portugal, San Marino, Spain and Switzerland. 
  • You will also need to provide us with your Dutch social security ('Burgerservicenummer') number.


In the case of applicants who are minors, we will need proof of identity from at least one legal guardian or representative; if a minor has his or her own proof of identity, you should be able to submit this. You must also bring with you official evidence that you are entitled to represent the minor as their legal guardian or representative, e.g. registration of the minor in the legal guardian's passport, a recent extract from the register of births (geboorteregister), a recent extract from the register of guardianship (voogdijregister) or a court order.

Evidence of residency

To open an account you must have a Dutch residential address. You can prove this with an extract from the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP). You apply for this extract in the municipality where you live.

Evidence of income

You will need to provide evidence of your income unless you only want to open a savings account. Please bring one of the following (recent) documents with you: 

  • Contract of employment 
  • Three consecutive pay slips

  • Contact: If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Identity checks required by law

On entering into a new customer relationship, ABN AMRO, just like other Dutch banks, is bound by national and international regulations. The purpose of these regulations - which we have incorporated into our organisational structures and procedures - is to guarantee the security and integrity of the financial services we provide to you, the customer. Our aim is to be a reliable, professional bank within this regulatory framework, and we are legally obliged to record every new customer's tax and social insurance ('sofi') number. We are also obliged to verify the authenticity of identity documents and to check that your home address is correct. We request your cooperation in this respect. If you have any questions, please contact one of our staff, who will be pleased to provide you with further information.
