Request NemID

You do not need to be a Danish national to obtain NemID, but you need to have a CPR number and valid ID.

There are several ways to request NemID.

  • You can obtain NemID in a citizen service centre
  • You can request NemID in your bank
  • You can request NemID online (this requires Danish passport or Danish driving licence).

Obtain NemID in a citizen service centre (Borgerservice)

If you do not a Danish driving licence or a Danish passport – or if you need NemID immediately – you can obtain NemID in a citizen service centre.

Remember to bring valid ID

Contact your bank to enter into an online banking agreement.

Request NemID online

If you have a Danish driving licence or a Danish passport as well as an address listed in the national register (CPR), you can request NemID online.

Order NemID with a Danish driving licence or a Danish passport (the form is in Danish)

Order NemID for Danish citizens living abroad - requires a Danish passport (the form is in Danish)

Order NemID for blind and visually impaired - requires a Danish driving license or a Danish passport (the form is in Danish)

You will receive two letters, one with your code card and one with a temporary activation password, which you use when you activate your NemID.

Who can obtain NemID?

You can obtain NemID when:

  • You have a Danish CPR number
  • You have reached the age of 15
  • You are able to meet the ID requirements.

If you are not a Danish citizen or have a CPR number, you need to bring valid ID to obtain a NemID in a citizen service centre.
