Registration upon arrival
We strongly encourage Nordic citizens to register with the public authorities, if you plan to reside in Denmark for more than 3 months because it makes a number of procedures easier and faster.
However, as a Nordic citizen you are free to enter, reside, study and work in Denmark. You are only required to apply for a CPR number if you intend to stay in Denmark for more than six months.
Bring your ID
As a Nordic citizen, you can enter Denmark without a passport. However, you must be able to identify yourself if required. Your driving license or bank card is sufficient identification, but we recommend you to bring your passport.
Bringing your family
If your family members are Nordic citizens, they can enter and reside in Denmark as Nordic Citizens (see above).
If your family members are not Nordic citizens, they can apply for a residence permit as accompanying family members to you based on your EU/EEA citizenship.
Please note: There are a number of documents and certificates you must bring from home in order to be registered.
Only certificates in English/German/Scandinavian languages are accepted (original or authorized translations). Please note that certificates from some countries need to be apostille certified.
