How do i open a bank account?

The ABN AMRO bank has a special service for international students. In the introduction week, we make an appointment with this bank for international students. It is only possible to open a bank account when you received a personal BSN from the municipality. It takes a few weeks before you actually have access to your new bank account. Therefore, we advise you to bring sufficient money for the first few weeks of your stay.

Non-Dutch nationals are not entitled to hold a Dutch credit card. The ABN AMRO bank does not allows students any credit. You receive a regular bankcard, which allows you to withdraw money from ATM’s throughout Europe.
