As an expat, international student, and migrant worker the process of obtaining a BSN (along with all the other documents you need) seems daunting.
In reality, once you know where you will live and have a rental contract, the process is straightforward.
Most people are required to register with the municipality within five days of arrival. Although, if you don’t have a fixed address you should make an appointment as soon as your rental contract is finalized. Either way, it’s always advised to call your municipality for advice once you arrive to The Netherlands.
As a payrolling service provider for highly skilled migrants, All About Expats is well-versed on the documents every international will need to make life in The Netherlands seamless.
