Things to remember when you apply for a CPR number
A permanent address in Denmark is mandatory in order to be able to apply for a CPR number. The minimum residing period needed for a permanent address varies in municipalities, but usually 1-3 months.
You will receive a case no. starting with the application year, e.g. 2020, by the end of the application submission. Please save that number for any possible future enquiries and for the later booking of a CPR appointment.
You will be contacted via email, in case relevant documents are missing and/or additional ones are needed.
