I am a self-employed entrepreneur with an NS-Business Card

An NS-Business Card is issued for a period of five years. What does that mean for you?


Correct address

We will send your new NS-Business Card to your private address or to your company's contact person. Check to see if your address is correct in Mijn NS Zakelijk. If you are unsure about whether you will receive your card at home or at your work, ask your company contact person.

Passport photo

If you have a Trein Vrij or Traject Vrij subscription, then your NS-Business Card features a photo of you. If you have granted permission for NS to save your picture, then you need to do nothing more. However, if not, then we ask that you send us a new passport photo.

Please note: we cannot renew the card without a valid passport photo, so the holder will not be able to travel using his/her NS-Business Card.

NS-Business Card without passport photo

If your NS-Business Card does not feature a passport photo, then you can expect the following when your card is renewed:

  • Check your e-mail address and post address in Mijn NS Zakelijk.
  • 4 weeks before the expiration date of the NS-Business Card, you will receive a notification sent to the e-mail address provided.
  • Approx. 3.5 weeks before the current card expires, you will receive the new NS-Business Card. Your company contact person can inform you whether you will receive the card at your home address provided or at your department, depending on the terms of the contract that your company has with NS.

NS-Business Card with a passport photo

If your NS-Business Card features a passport photo, then you can expect the following when your card is renewed:

  • Check your e-mail address and post address in Mijn NS Zakelijk.
  • If you have not granted permission for us to save the passport photo or if it is no longer valid, we will ask that you please send us a new passport photo 8 weeks before the expiration date of the NS-Business Card. Please note: we cannot renew the card without a valid passport photo, so your employee will not be able to travel with his/her old NS-Business Card!
  • If we have a valid passport photo, then you will receive a notification at the e-mail address provided 4 weeks before the expiration date.
  • Approx. 3.5 weeks before the current card expires, you will receive the new NS-Business Card at the home address provided or at your department, depending on the terms of the contract that your company has with NS.
