When you need Citizen Service to assist you with MitID

To get help from Citizen Service, you must prove who you are. MitID has strict requirements on how to document and validate your identity, among other things to prevent identity theft.

To get help from Citizen Service you must:

  1. Bring valid documentation - see below (the documentation must be brought in physical form - only the driving license and the health insurance card can be supported via the danish driving licence app and the danish health insurance card app).
  2. Answer a number of questions about yourself (based on data from the CPR Register) or bring a witnesser, who can confirm who you are. 

What is a witnesser?

A witnesser is a person, who will visit Citizen Service with you and confirm who you are. To be a witnesser, the person must be 18 years or older and have had MitID for more than 30 days. The witnesser must bring valid documentation with picture (see below) and his or her MitID. The person is allowed to be a witnesser 3 times within a 120 day period.

Foreigner or living outside Denmark?

Are you a foreigner or living outside of Denmark, we recommend that you always bring a witness to Citizen Service, as there might not be enough information about you in the CPR register.

If you have experienced problems scanning your passport and need to visit Citizen Service for help, make sure to bring the necessary documentation with you. This includes documentation with your Danish CPR number if you need MitID for accessing most Danish self-service solutions or MitID Erhverv.

If you want to use MitID Erhverv, where you act digitally on behalf of a Danish organization, you can read more at mitid-erhverv.dk
