How do I get NemID?

NemID is your digital signature and a single login for public websites, online banking and many other websites.

In order to get a NemID you must:

  • Be aged 15 or more. (If you are under the age of 15, you can only get NemID for online banking. Please contact your bank for further information.)
  • Have a CPR number. See how you get it at How do I get a CPR number?
  • Sign up on the NemID website

You do not have to be a Danish citizen to get a NemID. You can also get a NemID if you for example:

  • Have a Danish residence permit
  • If you work in Denmark
  • If you study in Denmark

There are several ways to get NemID

If you never had a NemID before, and you don't have a Danish passport or drivers licence, you must make an appointment with Citizen service in order to get a NemID.

You can also get NemID via online banking or order it online (requires Danish passport or Danish Driver's licence).

At the NemID website you can also find help if you:

  • Lost your code card.
  • Forgot your password.
  • Want to change your password.
  • Need an extra code card
  • and much more.
