The Danish national eID, MitID, is every resident’s personal key to digital services in Denmark, including self-service solutions provided by the public sector.
In Denmark, your contact with the public authorities and many private companies starts on the internet. In a large number of areas, you are obliged to use digital self-service.
In order to access digital self-services, you need MitID which is your personal digital ID for login and digital signature. It allows for citizens to access their public services 24 hours a day.

- change your address
- apply for childcare
- see your tax
- choose a doctor
- read your Digital Post
- leave Denmark
