My partner is not living in the Netherlands but needs a BSN. How can we get it?
In principle your partner needs to request a BSN in person at one of the applicable municipalities. But since your partner is not living in the Netherlands the BSN can also be requested with a written request (see attachment). The following information must be sent together with the request:
- a copy of a valid identity paper which show name, initials and date of birth;
- an official declaration from the municipality (less than 6 months old) which confirms the address of your partner;
- a copy of the marriage deed if you are married, the partnership deed if you are registered partners or a living together agreement made by a notary if you are living together.
Only documents in the Dutch, English or German language are accepted. If they are in another language then you need to arrange a translation.
The request and all documents can be sent to:
6400 AA Heerlen
