NemID is a digital signature that all residents in Denmark need to obtain. The purpose of NemID is for all residents to have one single internet log-in to access their personal accounts at public and private institutions.
Non-Danish citizens can only obtain NemID by visiting a bank or a Citizen Service Office (Borgerservice) with your passport, residence card, EU national ID card or EU driving licence and proof of your CPR number.
If you move to another residence you are required to change your address using your NemID on lifeindenmark.dk within five days of moving.
During your stay in Denmark you might need to show certain documents. Therefore be sure to bring the following from your home country: driving licence, medical files, professional certificates and diplomas.
