KPN - mobile sim-only

Get a Dutch phone number

If you’re from outside the EU, or if you’re in the Netherlands more than in your EU home country, you’ll need a Dutch sim card to avoid higher costs. For example, if you’re from the EU and are coming to the Netherlands for 6 months but have a 24 month contract in your home (EU) country, you won’t have to pay extra. However, if you only have a 12 month contract and you are coming to the Netherlands for 7 months, then you will be charged more. This is according to the EU Fair Trade policy.
