1. The existing customer can open the web form and log in

Open the web form and indicate that you want to open a joint account. The existing customer can already log in via the web form so that you do not have to enter this information again. Make sure the co-applicant knows you are applying for the joint account.

Enter the contact details of the co-applicant first and check that everything is correct. If the information is correct, click 'Confirm application'. You will receive an email containing a unique code.

2. Download the ABN AMRO app

Both of you need to download the ABN AMRO app. The co-applicant will need this app for identification purposes. You can apply for a joint bank account through the ABN AMRO app if the co-applicant:

  • is 18 years old or older
  • has an official home address in the Netherlands
  • is liable to tax in the Netherlands

You can click the 'I have an access code' button and type the unique code you received by email into the ABN AMRO app.

3. The co-applicant submits their identity document

The co-applicant needs to identify oneself in the ABN AMRO app. They can do this by taking a photo of your ID in the app.

Tips for making your photo:

  • Avoid glare and do not use the flash
  • Make sure your passport is within the frame
  • Use a dark background

4. The co-applicant takes a photo of himself or herself

The co-applicant can take a picture of oneself using his or her mobile phone so that we check that he or she is the person on the identity document.

Tips for making your photo:

  • Take the photo in a light environment
  • Make sure you do not have any backlight (e.g. from the sun behind you)
  • Hold the camera directly in front of your face

5. You've sent your joint application!

In order to provide you with the best possible service, we would like to get to know the co-applicant a little better. That is why we ask the co-applicant to answer some final questions through the app.

If your application is approved, the message will also explain the next steps. Your joint account will soon be ready for use.

You will receive the debit cards within 5 working days. Once they have arrived, you can apply for a savings account, insurance policy or credit card in a few simple steps.

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.
