CPR Registration

When you register as a resident in Denmark you will receive a CPR number, which is your personal identification number. The CPR number is used in relation to registration and personal identification, e.g. in relation to salary payment, housing purchases, bank transactions, insurance policies and many other situations. Please note that you must have a residence permit in order to register. Unless you are a Nordic citizen. Furthermore it is a condition that you have a place to live.
