Q&A: Mobile Phone

Why do I need a Dutch sim-card?
Without a Dutch sim-card it will be more expensive to make calls to Dutch phone numbers and to make use of the internet.

What is the easiest way to get one?
You can buy your sim-card at any phone company. A couple of examples are KPN, Tele2, Vodafone, Ben, Ziggo and T-Mobile. Besides that, you can also go to electronic stores. The employees of stores like Phone House, Mediamarkt and Saturn will be happy to help you out!

What are the requirements to get a Dutch phone contract?

  • Valid proof of identity (not a driving license);
  • Dutch bank account details or card;
  • Deposit (for non-EU citizens).
