CPR – Registration in Denmark

In Denmark each person has a personal registration number, which is called a CPR number.

The CPR number is essential in relation to any contact with the Danish authorities and especially in connection to tax and social security issues.

If you intend to stay for a period of 3 months or more (6 months if within EU/EEA or Nordic countries) you must notify the municipal authorities (Folkeregistret).
