How do I obtain a BSN?

A BSN is a unique personal registration number for any interaction with the Dutch authorities, getting paid, being entitled to benefits, but also for opening a bank account and taking out a health insurance.

Registering at the local municipality is how one obtains a BSN. After the town hall registration visit, you will receive your personal public service number, either immediately or a certain period of time after. This depends on the municipality’s process flow.

When a BSN is required, but your stay is less than 4 months, you will be able to apply for a BSN at one of the 19 municipalities which are authorized to register you in the Register Non Inhabitants (RNI). Should you extend your stay, you are required to change your registration at the town hall from non-resident to the status of long-stay-resident.

The pain has become worse and so bad that she does not want to go to school. What can this be? My husband and I look at each other; can this be her appendix? We take a quick look at a healthcare website and yes, the appendix is on the right side of the body. Call the family doctor In the Netherlands, you need to consult the family doctor before you go to the hospital. The only exception is an emergency. Our daughter can still talk. She doesn’t feel well, but […]
