When you start working in the Netherlands, you need to have a Dutch bank account. To open an account take a valid proof of identity (not a driving license) and your BSN. As always, it might be necessary to arrange an appointment beforehand. Be sure to apply for Internet banking services as this is the most convenient and cost-effective way to make transactions. Most banks will provide you with an "E-dentifier" or some kind of login details that allow you to access your account from your personal computer and make your transactions online.
