Residency Permit and CPR (Personal Identification Number)

Residency permit for EU/EAA students (step 1) 

Each autumn semester we arrange for incoming EU/EAA students to get their residency permit before the official semester begins. 

If you arrive in Denmark more than 6 weeks before semester start, or are coming for the spring semester, you will need to arrange these permits yourself and make your own appointment.

What you need have:

  • Passport/ID card
  • 2 copies of passport (only photo page OR 2 copies of ID card (both sides)
  • 1 passport photo (real photo, not printed copy)
  • 1 copy of your Confirmation attest from the Academy
  • 1 copy of the blue EU health card (both sides)
  • Application form for residence certificate (PDF online here). Filled out before!
  • Documentation of your Danish address (for at least 4 weeks). You need to bring proof that rent has been paid for the 4 weeks.

Failure to have the correct and completed documents will delay the process greatly and result in you having to complete the process individually at a later date. Further questions about the residency permit should be directed to SIRI - contact details here
