CPR number

Everyone who lives in Denmark is required to have a civil registration number called a CPR number.

All residents in Denmark need to have a CPR number. You need it to open a bank account, access your health insurance, borrow books from the library, pay tax, receive a salary and so on.


Important information about your address

  • It must be a valid address, meaning that you have the right to register your address in the CPR system
  • You are not able to register for your CPR until you actually live at your residence
