Permits: How to get residence permit and CPR number

If you are staying in Denmark for more than 3 months you will need a residence permit and a CPR number (personal identification number). Your CPR number enables you to get health insurance in Denmark.

Arrive in Denmark no more than 6 weeks before study start

For every intake, we arrange an event so that you can apply for both your residence permit and your CPR number as part of the orientation days at the Academy.

You will receive further information about this directly from the Academy after you have got your final admission letter.

Arrive in Denmark more than 6 weeks before study start

If you arrive more than 6 weeks before study start or after our orientation days, you will need to go to the State Administration centre yourself for your residence permit, and then to Citizen Services in Aarhus for your CPR number.
