NemID and digital post
Your NemID is part of your digital identity and helps you to access a number of online services.
In 2022 all NemID users will migrate to MitID: Denmark’s new digital ID. Find more information about it on mitid.dk
If you need help migrating your user to MitID, you can book a time at Borgerservice.
Your NemID is a personal and secure login that is used for a variety of online services such as online banking, accessing your Digital Post, registering a new address, etc.
In order to get a NemID, you need:
A CPR number
Be at least 15 years of age
There are several ways to obtain your NemID:
- At Borgerservice (you need to make an appointment)*
- At your bank or via online banking (contact your bank for more information)
- By ordering NemID online (this requires a Danish passport or a Danish driver’s license)
*Please note, that if you are new to Denmark, in order to obtain your NemID at Borgerservice right away, you need to have an attesting witness. If you do not have an attesting witness the NemID will be issued and sent to you by post.
Please make sure to have your name on your mailbox. The activation code is used once to create your own password for your NemID. The code card is used together with your user ID and password every time you use NemID.
You can also download NemID Code app and use your NemID straight from your smartphone or tablet.
