After you upload your identity document, you will be asked to verify the details. You can change your name and date of birth if necessary. Your application may be rejected if the details cannot be properly verified. You can then restart the application.

Like all other banks, we are legally obliged to verify the identity of you and your co-applicant and to check that you can both become clients. 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.

If you take a photo of an international identity card or driving licence, the app will not recognise it as ID. Try taking a photo of your passport. If this doesn't work either using the above tips, we'll be happy to help you over the phone. You can always call us.
