    Is it hard to get a bank account in the Netherlands?

    I was wondering how hard it would be for a non EU member to get a bank account in the Netherlands, is that even possible? I would like to get a bank account while I'm there, but I still need to know what kind of papers I'd need in order to do so. If someone over here could help out with this, I'd really appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance!

    You were staying for a month, yes? This is way too short for a bank account, too much hassle for little gain and I really doubt that any bank would take you as customer for just one month.

    I wanted to know because me and my boyfriend plan to stay there for good in the future, and we are actually a bit nervious about the fact I'm not a EU citizen. So we are afraid I might have some trouble doing simple things like opening a bank account over there! I heard dutch people are very strict about that.

    First move there, then open a bank account. Most likely that they will want some proof of residence (visas, rent agreement etc.) before they will open one for you.

    I had in mind to move there first :P I just wanted to see if someone over here could give me some useful advice or tip; specially someone in a similar situation to mine. I know the Netherlands is not very fond of integration anymore...
