About Citizen service number
If you are visiting the Netherlands to work or study, you will need a citizen service number (called Burgerservicenummer - BSN). You will be issued this number when you register with the Municipal Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen).
You will need a BSN as an employee, in education, health care. You will also need it for taxes and other matters concerning the Dutch government.
