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?

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

This is how you get a NemID

Make an appointment with a citizen service center and bring:

  • Health insurance card (Yellow Card).
  • ID with picture: Passport, National Id Card, EU/EEA driver’s license, Residence card (pink)

NemID consists of a user ID, a password and a code card (one-time codes). The code card will be sent to you by ordinary post.
