I live abroad

Do you live abroad? And do you have the Dutch nationality or the nationality of another country in the European Economic Area (EEA)? Then you can apply for a DigiD.

Did you already have a DigiD before moving abroad? Then you can continue to use your DigiD.

Applying for a DigiD abroad

DigiD through the Social Insurance Bank (SVB)

What do I need?

Please note, you cannot use a driver's license in place of an identity card. 

How does it work? 

Applying for a DigiD abroad can be done in two ways: 

  • through the application form
  • through the Social Insurance Bank (SVB); if you are receiving or will soon receive a Dutch state pension. 

Arrange matters abroad

Information about DigiD is also available in French and Spanish on the website Netherlands Worldwide.
