ID card with DigiD login function

If you are a Dutch national living abroad, you can use your ID card to log in with DigiD if it was issued on or after 4 January 2021. Log in this way to government websites, for example.

Applying for an ID card

If you are applying for a Dutch ID card abroad, you will receive an ID card that can be used for login purposes.

You will receive an ID card that can be used for login purposes if you have a citizen service number (BSN). If you don’t, the ID card you receive cannot be used for login purposes. 

Activating your ID card’s login function

You must activate your ID card’s login function before you can use it for login purposes.

Logging in using DigiD

With your ID card you can log in using DigiD on your phone, tablet or computer. But you must have an activated DigiD app on your device
