Open your Dutch bank account within minutes from anywhere in the EU

Open your Dutch bank account within minutes from anywhere in the EU


Need a Dutch bank account? Don’t want to worry about mountains of paperwork? Get an account with bunq, directly via your phone. Yes, even before you’ve left your home country for the Netherlands.

Mobile only, paperwork-free, international support

Opening a bunq account saves you from the stress and paperwork that come with emigration. This frees up more time for you to focus on the excitement of moving to a new country.

bunq eliminates unnecessary waiting times by offering a fully mobile experience. All you need is an EU address and proof of identity (such as a passport). After signing up, you will have a full Dutch bank account; vital for getting paid your salary, setting up debit orders and more.

Not able to speak Dutch? This is not an issue for bunq’s international support team; they offer service in English, German, Italian and Spanish. This multi-lingual support is available seven days a week, including on national holidays, which means you’ll always have the best support whenever you need it.

Cutting down on red tape

In the Netherlands, you generally need to have a rental contract and a BSN (the Citizen Service Number that all expats are required to have) before opening a bank account.

Sign-up before you receive your BSN!

However, bunq allows you to open up an account before you have either one.

That’s one more thing to tick off the to-do list, and makes the entire emigration process easier.

Enjoy your freedom

bunq is great for storing and spending your money, but they offer something even more important: freedom!

  • Freedom from time wasted in bank branches with immediate support directly on your phone.
  • Freedom to open bank accounts for groups to share with partners, friends, family, and roommates.
  • Freedom to make instant person-to-person payments.
  • Freedom to use money the way you want to with the latest tech innovations.

And all of this coupled with an ethical company culture.

Keen on getting a bunq account?

Here’s how you sign up:

  1. Download the app on your Android or iOS device.
  2. Register with your EU address.
  3. Have a brief video call in English, where you’ll be asked to provide proof of ID.

After the video call, your application will be reviewed and approved within 24 hours (though this typically happens within a few minutes). You’ve now got a full bank account, and the freedom to focus on the rest of your emigration process.
