I'm aware of that, but don't I need to have an address first? I can't just walk in to whichever gemeente to ask for one, while staying at an AirBnB flat or a hotel, can I?

When we did it (albeit many years ago and was called a SOFI number then), it was all part of the same process. If your landlord is happy for you to register at your Airbnb address, then you can register, get it over and done with, then when you find somewhere permanent, just let them know the change of address.

Yes you are right, it seems the council issue you with a BSN also these days. Used to be more complex. Good luck!
