Opening a Dutch bank account during the corona outbreak

Opening a Dutch bank account during the corona outbreak

Obtaining a Dutch bank account is important when you move to the Netherlands. Credit cards are rarely accepted here, so it is convenient to obtain a Dutch debit card as soon as possible. 

Is it possible to open a Dutch bank account during the Corona outbreak?

Yes, you most definitely can! However, please note that also banks have taken precautions regarding the coronavirus. The safety measures differ per bank.

Are banks in the Netherlands still open?

Yes, most banks are still open but some branches are closed and opening hours may be different than normal. You will receive a confirmation email of your appointment, clearly detailing the location and time of your appointment. 

How do I open a Dutch bank account during the coronavirus outbreak?

Luckily very little has changed. You still need your passport, employment contract and BSN number. Whether the appointment will be through video banking or face-to-face, the bank employee will still take time to listen to your requirements and advise you accordingly. It also is still possible to arrange different insurances during this meeting. You will still receive your IBAN right away and your debit card will follow within a couple of working days by post. 

Settle Service will be happy to assist with the opening of a Dutch bank account, even during the current circumstances.

“Settle service was very proactive and helpful in all aspects of the entire immigration procedure right from Day 1. I am very appreciative of the professionalism and high quality of services provided to me by the entire team.“
