The benefits of opening an account online

Basic Payment Package is our inexpensive payment package and you can use it to manage all your day-to-day banking.
You can open this bank account entirely online. All you need is your mobile and your ID.
You can prove your identity in the ABN AMRO app, so you don’t need an appointment and don't need to come to one of our branch offices.

Download the app

Download the ABN AMRO app and click ‘Open account’. You can open a bank account using the ABN AMRO app if you:

  • are aged 18 years or older;
  • have an official Dutch home address;
  • have a Dutch ID or an international passport;
  • are liable to pay taxes in the Netherlands (and possibly also in another country).

Provide proof of your identity

Take a photo of your ID. You can use the following to open a bank account in the ABN AMRO app:

  • a Dutch ID card, driving licence or passport;
  • an international passport.

Take a photo

Take a photo of yourself with your mobile. This is so we can verify that you are the person shown on the ID.

Confirm your request

Enter your details and make sure everything is correct. Once you’ve done that, confirm your request by entering the unique code.

That’s it! We will start opening your account for you and let you know within four hours whether your request has been approved.
