Activating the DigiD app abroad

Language selection:English

If you are a Dutch national living abroad, you can activate the DigiD app using a one-off check of your passport, driving licence or identity card (ID check). If you can’t do that, you can also activate the app using a verification code sent by SMS. If you already use the DigiD app on one device, you can use that device to activate the app on another device.
