You have to report that you leave to the Civil Registration System (CPR) if:
- you will be gone for more than 6 months. Please note that if you go to Denmark on holiday during your stay abroad, this will not interrupt the 6-month period.
- you are gone for less than 6 months and you sublet or hire out your residence while you are gone. That is also called giving up the right of disposal.
You deregister in the self-service using NemID/MitID.
If you do not have a NemID/MitID, you can book an appointment with Citizen Service, and you can fill in a leaving form and submitting it to your municipality of residence.
When leaving Denmark, you must destroy your yellow national health insurance card ('sundhedskort') (cut it up) as it only applies to individuals living in Denmark.
