Ap­pli­ca­tion for EU resi­dence docu­ment

If you plan to stay in Denmark for more than three months, you must apply for the EU residence document no later than three months following the date you enter Denmark.

The EU residence document gives you the right to stay in Denmark for longer than three months and may also enable you to register for a CPR number (civil registration number) with your local municipality.

It is the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) who is responsible for the EU registration process and following it is us at Vejle Municipality who are responsible for ordering CPR, health card and NemID (easy access ID).


What to do first? 

NOTE: When registering as an EU citizen in Denmark, you have to get your EU registration document, before you come by Vejle Municipality for CPR etc. Based on your EU registration we can do the next steps in the process. 


Book an appointment with SIRI

Please notice that you cannot just stop by an SIRI office. You have to book an appointment. If all the documents are in order, they will make your EU registration while you wait within your booked time slot. 

When you have recieved your EU registration document you can stop by us at any time within the opening hours for the process for CPR, health card and NemID. 

Read more about what to remember in the step by step  and Q&A sections. 

Vejle Municipality's opening hours are Monday-Wednesday 9-15 (9am-3pm), Thursday 9-17 (9am-5pm) and Friday 9-14 (9am-2pm). Find our address at the bottom of the page.
