DigiD for Dutch people living abroad
It is now possible for Dutch citizens living abroad to apply for a DigiD and receive the login code at the counter of a Dutch mission. In Australia that mission is the Consulate-General in Sydney.
DigiD is a digital personal login code, combined with a password which enables you to request services from several authorities in the Netherlands e.g. the tax office, Social Security Bank SVB, pension funds, municipal authorities, the Educational Finance Service DUO etc.
For more information on how to apply for a DigiD when living outside of the Netherlands please go to: https://www.digid.nl/en/about-digid/digid-via-balieuitgifte/
Please note: you cannot apply for a DigiD at the Consulate-General in Sydney. The Consulate-General can only provide you with the first login code. To obtain this code you are required to visit the Consulate-General in person and identify yourself with your valid Dutch passport.
The website (www.digid.nl) to apply for your DigiD is in Dutch only. Anyone who doesn’t understand the Dutch language is advised to ask someone who does to help her/him
