Rules for moving to Denmark
If you are moving to Denmark with the intention of staying more than three months, you have the right to get registered in the register of population and get a CPR number (personal identity number). If you’re planning to stay in Denmark for more than 6 months, you’re required by law to get registered in the register of population.
You have to book a time for a personal meeting in Borgerservice. Bring your passport, residency permit and rental agreement to be able to get your entry registered.
You must apply for a residency permit.
You can look for information concerning the rules of residency permits in Denmark on the website of the Immigration Office: nyidanmark.dk.
As a foreign citizen outside the EU, with the intention of staying in Denmark for more than three months, you have to book time for a personal meeting in Borgerservice to get CPR registered. You must bring your passport, residence permit and rental agreement or a member of the household. If you’re entering as an au pair you can bring a member of your host family (accommodation host) or some form of confirmation from your host family, instead of a rental agreement. If you’re unable to bring a rental contract or any of the alternatives, we will have to acquire a confirmation from the household, and your registration can be delayed. You can only get registered, if you have a residence permit.
