How to use MitID app and alternatives

If you don’t have a CPR number or a NemID

You can get MitID with the MitID app if you have a Danish, Greenlandic or Faroese passport. It is not possible to get MitID with the MitID app with a foreign passport yet.

If you don’t have a CPR number or a NemID you can only get MitID on a low assurance level, which means you will not have access to all public self-service solutions and some private self-service solutions.

When it is possible to get MitID without a CPR number, you need to:

  • visit Citizen Service to get MitID


  • To contact MitID support and get a P-code. The P-code confirms your identity in the MitID app in combination with your passport.

If you previously have lived in Denmark

You would have received at letter about MitID at the beginning of October last year? You received the letter because NemID became MitID and you were registered as a NemID user. The letter was sent by Digital Post and can be read on or e-Boks. The letter explains how to get MitID. Five different letters ws sent to five different groups. which group you were placed in depended on whether you had online banking in Denmark or not, and whether you needed to update your information in NemID or not. Therefore, the letters were targeted  the individual recipient’s situation. If you no longer use NemID, you can simply ignore the letter.
