Legitimation and documentation

If you want to qualify for MitID at a specific assurance level, you need to pass the requirements for that level.

Every assurance level required one or more types of legitimation and documentation, like passport or driver license.

The documents required are separated into different categories. You can combine the documents from the different categories to get the MitID authenticator approved at the wanted assurance level. A Danish passport or driver licence are normally sufficient.

If you have a passport or an identity card issued in another country, you will need a Danish Health Insurance Card/Special Health Insurance Card or a Danish certificate of residence to qualify for assurance level Substantial.

Contact MitID support, Citizen Service or your bank, if you have further questions.
