In this case, you can only become a client at an ABN AMRO branch. Make an appointment at one of our branches to do this. You can do this by contacting us (standard call charges apply).

No. In order to open an ABN AMRO savings account, you have to have a Basic Payment Package. Once you have opened a bank account, you can open a savings account. This also allows you to apply for a credit card, for example.

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.

We want to be sure that you are who you say you are when you open an account. This helps us to prevent fraud, for example abuse of your current account. For this reason, one of the things we need from you is an extract from the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP). You can request it yourself at your municipality. You can open the account even without the extract, but some features of your current account will not be available in this case, for example deposits and cash withdrawals.

All banks are required to verify the identity of their customers and ABN AMRO is no exception. This requirement is set out in the Dutch Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act and helps to prevent money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

You will receive information about the status of your application via SMS and e-mail within 4 hours after completing the application. Has your application been rejected? Then we will explain in the text message why your application has been rejected. In addition, you will see an 'error screen' in the ABN AMRO app. Here you can read what happened and what you can do.
