CPR number

This page is under construction

All residents in Denmark are registered in the Civil Registration System (CPR) with a CPR number. The CPR number is a unique number, giving you access to health care, to open a bank account, receive salay and many other things in Denmark. It is crucial to get the CPR number in order to proceed with most things, when you've arrived.

You need to upload all information for the application for your CPR number online. You will need the following documents:

  • EU certificate or residence and work permit if you are a non EU/EEA citizen
  • Proof of a legal addres in Denmark
  • Copy of your passport 
  • Copy of your marriage certificate and birth certificates for your children (if applicable)

Once you have uploaded the information, your application will be processed by the Municipality and once it's been processed, you will receive an email saying that you can go online and book an appointment to collect your CPR number at the International Citizen Service in downtown Copenhagen.

Read more about what to bring and how to get your CPR number.



The International House helps with getting the MitID, please download the MitID app and have a user ID and phone number ready beforehand.

 Most people can create their own MitD using the app and the chip in their passport:

  • If you have a passport with a chip and have downloaded the MitID app, you can usually create your own MitID.
  • If you have an administrative CPR number, tax ID number, or applying for re-entry to the country, you can get MitID on the same day.
  • If it's your first time getting a CPR number, you can get MitID the next day (but there may be a one-day delay).

You can learn more about getting help with MitID here.

 If you are a cross-border commuter different rules apply. In this case you need to book an appointment at citizen center (Borgerservice). 

 At the top of this page, you will find a guide to MitID and e-boks.
