MitID and digital post
Your MitID is part of your digital identity and helps you to access a number of online services.
In order to get a MitID, you need*:
A CPR number

There are several ways to obtain your MitID:
- At Borgerservice (you need to make an appointment)*
- At your bank or via online banking (contact your bank for more information)
- By ordering MitID online (this requires a Danish passport or a Danish driver’s license)
*Please note that if you are new to Denmark, you may also need an attesting witness in order to obtain your MitID at Borgerservice right away.
