We recommend students to open a bank account with ABN AMRO bank. To open a bank account you are required to bring the following documents: Fontys admission letter, Passport, Dutch address, Social security number (BSN). You need to make an appointment with the bank via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The address of the ABN AMRO bank is: Heuvelring 88 5038 CL Tilburg. After opening a bank account you will get your pass directly. With a Dutch bank account you can easily use internet banking, for example to pay for the rent of the student room. Moreover, several shops in the Netherlands do not accept MasterCard or visa-cards, but only maestro-cards. Keep this in mind when arriving in the Netherlands.
