How to register with the Danish authorities

You must visit the Danish authorities yourself to register for a residence permit, Danish Social Security Number (CPR) and health care in Denmark.

The registration process depends on your nationality. Please find the relevant information below. 

 

NON-EU and Nordic citizens

You must apply for a Civil Registration Number (CPR) at Citizen Services in the municipality you live in. The CPR number you have received when you were admitted to SDU is only a constructed one and is not valid. 

Three steps (only for Odense municipality): 

  1. Fill in the online form and attach the required documents: copy of accommodation lease, copy of passport or national ID and copy of residence permit (NON-EU students only). You need to bring the original documents to your physical appointment at Citizen Services.
  2. Book an appointment at Citizen Services through their website: Choose “Entry to Denmark”. If you do not have Danish phone number, write you date of birth (DDMMYYYY) instead. The available time slots are posted 5 week days ahead. Every morning new time slots for the 5th day will be posted.Your accommodation lease must be in effect on the date you book an appointment for. If your accommodation lease is valid from September 1st, you should not book an appointment before this date.

  3. Go to your appointment. Once you have received your CPR number, send a copy of the letter or yellow health insurance card to SDU International at int@sdu.dk, so we can register it in our system.

     

EU citizens

You need to apply for an EU residence permit in Denmark as well as a Civil Registration Number (CPR). This is done through two different agencies. SDU International has arranged specific timeslots for the registration of SDU students on September 7 and 14 to make the process faster and easier.  More information on the process and documentation requirements can be found in the Teams group.
