Please note that at least one of the ID cards must be your health insurance card, certificate of residential address, or birth or name certificate.

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.
The code card is a small laminated card, the size of a credit card, carrying printed codes (one-time codes).
