If you cannot apply for holiday allowance digitally

Read more and self-services

If you do not have NemID, you can apply for disbursement of your holiday allowance in other ways. It depends on the party which disburses the holiday allowance.

If your holiday allowance is disbursed by your employer or a holiday fund, you can fill in a form and send it to Feriepengeinfo.

However, this does not apply if you have earned holiday allowance from an employer reporting via Arbejdsgivernes Centrale Ferieregister (ACF – central holiday register). Then you will have received a holiday card. The guidelines on the holiday card tell you what to do.

If you have been prevented from taking your holiday

If you are prevented from taking holiday, your holiday allowance may be disbursed without you having to take holiday. You can have 15 days of holiday disbursed after 30 September, and the rest of your days of holiday after 30 April when the holiday year ends.

If you do not have a NemID, and have been prevented from taking your holiday, you have to fill out the form below.

Reasons for being prevented from taking holiday include illness, maternity/paternity leave, self-employment, compulsory military service etc. Read more about valid reasons at borger.dk (in Danish only).
