What is a BSN (Burgerservicenummer), why do I need to upload proof of my BSN, and what type of documents should this be

Modified on Wed, 20 Mar at 3:39 PM

A Burgerservicenummer (BSN) is your personal identification number for interactions with the Dutch government. You are assigned a BSN when you register in the Personal Records Database (BRP).

For individuals with a non-Dutch nationality within and outside the EER, it is mandatory to provide an official document that displays your BSN. This can be a photo/copy of an extract from the Personal Records Database, a letter from an official authority (such as the tax office or DUO), your healthcare insurance card, or the front and back of your Dutch driver's license.
