In order to pay rent, receive salary etc. you need to set-up a Dutch bank account. You can do this by setting up an appointment at a bank directly.
To set-up a bank account you will need the following:
- Your BSN number (Burgerservicenummer)
- A valid form of ID (passport or identity card - often a drivers licence is not acceptable)
- Proof of address (i.e. a rental contract)
- Residency permit if you come from outside of the EU
