Banking and NemKonto

Bank account

When you arrive in Denmark to start your work at SDU, it is also very important that you get a Danish bank account (Nemkonto) as soon as possible. This enables SDU to transfer your salary to your account. Nemkonto is a public payment system that enables the authorities to transfer money to you. You can read more about, how to open a bank account at our website here.

You need to contact your bank for more information about making your bank account a Nemkonto. To establish an account at a Danish bank you must first get a CPR-number and receive your yellow health card.

If you don't take up residence in Denmark and get a CPR-number you can have your foreign bank account assigned as a Nemkonto. You can find the registration form and the instructions here, and you can read more about NemKonto at Work in Denmark's website


NemID consists of User ID, a Password and a code card with codes (one-time codes). When you log on, you enter first your User ID and your Password, and then a code from your code card.

You can use NemID for public authorities’ self-service, online banking, E-boks  as well as a great number of private websites.

You can obtain NemID through personal appearance at a citizen service center when you have received your yellow health card in the mail.

You can find more information about NEM-ID here at International Community Odense's website.
