NemID for self-service online

NemID is your free login for everything. Use it for your online banking, applying for the Danish students’ Grants and Loans Scheme (SU) or to register your new address.

Get NemID

The first thing you need to do to get started is to request NemID on this website. When ordering, you will need to provide information including your CPR number as well as the number from your Danish passport or Danish driving licence.

Request NemID

Code card

When you have requested NemID, you will receive a NemID code card by post. The code card is a little piece of card about the size of a credit card, printed with a list of numbers (one-time passwords). You need to use the codes on the code card together with your user ID and password each time you use NemID.

Activating NemID

After you have received your code card, you will also be sent an activation password by post. This activation code is only to be used the first time you want to use NemID. Afterwards, the system will ask you to create your own password.

Use NemID as you wish

After you have received your code card and created your own password, you will be up and running with NemID.  And then you will of course have to use NemID on this website to access NemID self-service to manage your NemID.


Self-service on this website is your gateway to all aspects of administration for your NemID. This is where you can change your user ID or password, for example. And you can add an alternative dispatch address or request an extra code card if you need to.
