Proof of residence in Copenhagen before 1971

If you have lived in Copenhagen before 1971, and you want these addresses, you cannot use the self-service solution on this site.

If you don't have a NemID

If you don't have a NemID, you can get your certificate of residence and civil status at Copenhagen Citizen Service. There, you can only have the certificates printed in Danish. You can get the certificate on the same day.
