Conditions for opening a bank account.
For almost all banks, you need a citizen service number (BSN). You also need an address, telephone number and email address. With a payment account comes an IBAN, a debit card and the ability to arrange (international) banking through internet banking. Through the website of Betaalvereniging Nederland you can see which banks offer this and what the conditions are.
