How do I get an EU registration certificate?
You can stay in Denmark for up to 3 months without a registration certificate. If you expect that your stay in Denmark will last more than 3 months, you need to apply for an EU residence document before the three months have expired.
If you are a jobseeker you can stay for up to 6 months, calculated from your day of entry, before you have to register.
An EU residence document is your proof that as an EU citizen - or as family member of an EU citizen - you have a right to reside in Denmark.
You can get a registration certificate if you are a:
- self-employed person
- have sufficient resources
- family member
You can apply for your registration certificate at the State Administration main office or by appointment at the International Citizen Service

The State Administration is present at International House Copenhagen on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
