A BSN (Burger service nummer) is your citizen's identity number. It allows you to access public services and organisations. Without one, you cannot get a bank account, get paid, get health insurance or pay your taxes. Dutch citizens are allocated a BSN at birth. If you are from the EU, you will be allocated a BSN after you register with your municipality. If you are from a non-EU country, you will be issued a BSN number; providing you are given a residence permit from the department of immigration (IND).
