Collecting a DigiD activation code abroad

You must collect your activation code from a DigiD collection point within 30 days of receiving the collection code. The code will be sent to you when you apply. DigiD collection points are located at Dutch representations abroad and offices of the Representation of the Netherlands in Caribbean part of the Netherlands.

Many DigiD collection points are open by appointment only. If you arrange an appointment before you have applied for your DigiD, make sure you will be able to collect your code in time.

Due to the corona virus, the possibilities to collect a DigiD activation code at the embassy or consulate-general are limited. Are you going to the Netherlands anytime soon? Then you can go to a DigiD collection point in the Netherlands.
