Registration and CPR-number

CPR number

When you arrive in Denmark to start your work at SDU, it is important that you contact the relevant authorities in the correct order to get registered at the National Registration Office and to obtain a CPR number and a health card.


You can get registered at your local municipality´s citizen service center.
If you live in Odense, Aarhus, Aalborg or Copenhagen, you can visit the International Citizen Service (ICS) where you will find all the services you need in one place.

When you have registered, you will be issued a CPR number and you will receive a yellow health insurance card in the mail within 30 days.
You will be covered by Danish health care as soon as you get the CPR number, so you need to make sure that you are sufficiently covered by a private insurance or by the Blue European Health Insurance Card from another EU-country in the period of time until you get registered.

Please find the relevant checklist for registration according to nationality here.
