It is now possible to get MitID with a foreign passport or international ID card. A new function in the MitID app makes it possible to create a MitID directly in the app with a foreign passport or ID card.
In June 2022, there was a new function in the MitID app that made it possible to get MitID directly in the MitID app if you had a valid Danish, Greenlandic or Faroese passport. Now an update to the function is introduced so that it is also possible to use foreign passports or ID cards with a chip.
Consequently, it is easier to get a MitID if you live abroad, need a MitID, but do not have a valid Danish passport.
In order to get MitID, you need to confirm your identity. Consequently, some NemID users couldn’t get MitID before doing this – which could be done e.g. in the NemID code app or via the MitID app with a valid Danish, Greenlandic or Faroese passport or by physically appearing at a Citizen Service Centre. With the new function you can also confirm your identity via the MitID app with a passport or ID card from other countries. It simply requires that the passport or ID card is equipped with a chip.
All you will need is a valid passport/ID card and access to a phone that can scan the chip: an iPhone 7 or above or a newer Android phone.

If you already have the MitID app, make sure to update it to use the new function. If you need help, then contact the MitID support or your bank.
