How to open a Bank Account in Netherlands online for example for iDeal to get personalised OV-chipkaart and or receive salary directly to Netherlands?
Only bank I found you can open account via app &app / website available in English available) is: ABN AMRO
You do not need to ask an appointment for ABN AMRO bank account opening but find the link to download the app from here:
You only need to scan your passport (ID will not work, you need to try again with passport!) and add your BSN number and personal details.
Again, to open ABN AMRO bank account without BSN number, is not possible.
In few hours you will have an email letting you know it will be opened.
If you managed to do with some other bank app, let me know, I downloaded & checked all of them June 2022 as the list of the iDeal ones I could see, when trying to order my personalised OV-chipkaart.
Also let me know if you have found free bank account in Netherlands or also:

– How to open a bank account in ING Netherlands online (but I think you need appointment for that).
You only need a Netherland address (but not need to be a resident yet) where they send you everything in 3-4 different letters via normal mail.
It is also ok if your name is not in mailbox as most of the houses, every mailbox has a separate number (address).
When opening account in Netherlands, these letters will arrive:
1 letter debit card
2 letter debit card pin
3 letter e.dentifier2
(machine to enter your debit card to calculate pins when you enter your card pin)
4 letter how to activate account reminder
Activating the debit card and account is easy. Just follow the instruction from separate letter.
Everything should be very straight forward, but you are doing it the first time so you can always ask my help also via video call, I can help you to set everything up.
One thing I would recommend is to cancel normal bank letters to be sent to your address, it is easily doable directly from inside the ABN AMRO app itself.
ABN AMRO bank account cost is € 2.95, monthly, with “maestro” card that also works in Albert Heijn supermarket etc. as many places VISA and MASTER card are not accepted.
How long does it take to open a bank account in Netherlands?
In a few weeks time (10 working days) you should have received everything.
How to open a non resident bank account in the Netherlands?
Valid question but as I already tested myself, it is possible to open bank account in The Netherlands without to be a resident here. Registering BSN number is enough.
