    If you are an EU citizen, you can easily do your entire registration at our One-Stop Service. Read more about the requirements at the website Registering as an EU citizen.  

  • How do I register in Denmark as a non-EU citizen?

    If you are a citizen from a country outside Scandinavia, the EU/EEA or Switzerland, you must apply for a residence and work permit from your home country before coming to Denmark. Read more about this at the website Registering as an non-EU citizen.
