Because of the large number of students arriving in Copenhagen in August/September and January/February we are unfortunately not able to help you with a EU registration certificate (residence/work permit) and CPR registration at the ICS – International Citizen Service at this time of the year. During peak seasons there are special arrangements at some of the educational institutions:
Your passport or other valid travel document, national ID card with picture. (if possible also a color copy of the passport/ID).
One passport picture
Documentation for enrolment (educational establishment approved by the Danish Education Support Agency).
