    Hi there,

    You can try contacting ABN Amro.  They are one of the leading banks here in Holland and they open international accounts for foreigners outside of Holland.  You get a savings and a current account together with a debit card.  You can electronically transfer money before you leave for Holland etc. You can then “convert” this account to a local one upon arrival in Holland and getting your BSN.

    Hope this helps.
