When you have received your residence and/or work permit, or EU registration certificate, you can visit International Citizen Service or Borgerservice for your civil registration number (CPR).

 

It is important to get a CPR number as soon as possible, as it is used by the entire public administration in Denmark as well as private companies, including all of the leading banks and insurers.

 

In order to get a CPR number you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are staying in Denmark for more than 3 months.
  • You have an EU residence document, if you are an EU citizen (Nordic citizens excepted). Read how to get an EU residence document here.
  • You hold a residence permit, if you are a non-EU citizen. Read about residence permits here.
  • You have a permanent address in Denmark

 

Please bring these documents with you:

  • Your Danish residence and work permit (non-EU/EEA citizens), or certificate of registration (for EU/EEA and Swiss citizens). Nordic citizens must bring proof of their Nordic personal identification number, e.g. your passport
  • Some form of photo ID, e.g. your passport
  • If you are married, your marriage certificate or a certified copy of it
  • If you have children, your child/children’s birth certificate(s)
  • If you are divorced, your divorce certificate
  • If you are a widow/widower, the death certificate of your husband/wife
  • Proof of your address in Denmark, e.g. a rental contract

Please note that if your documents are not in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, English or German, you must bring a certified translation of them.


It is important to get a CPR number as soon as possible, as it is used by the entire public administration in Denmark as well as private companies, including all of the leading banks and insurers.
