Getting your NemID

To apply for a NemID, book an appointment with your nearest Citizen Service Centre.

NemID is your digital signature and a single login for public websites, online banking and many other websites. NemID consists of a user ID, a password and a code card (one-time codes).

Apply for your NemID

To apply for NemID, you must: 

  • Be at least 15 years old
  • Have a CPR number  
  • Have a photo ID

Book an online appointment at a citizen service centre and bring: 

  • Your yellow Health Card OR your preliminary income statement (Forskudsopgørelse)
  • Photo ID (passport, national ID card, EU-EEA driver’s licence or pink residence card) 

The code card will be sent to you by ordinary post.
