Residency in Denmark

When you arrive in Aalborg as a student you need to register with the authorities. Which authority/ies you visit depends on various things, including where you come from, whether you also need to register family members, and whether you have completed certain paperwork before you arrive. Locations and opening hours of the various authorities can be found below.

 

Nordic citizens

If you come from one of the Nordic countries (Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) you will find information about what you need to do in order to take up residency in Denmark via the following link: Nordic citizens. Please note that if you have family members who are EU/EEA/Swiss citizens, they will need to apply for a registration certificate and should visit SIRI’s office in Aalborg, while family members who are non-EU/EEA citizens will need to apply for a residence permit through the immigration office at Aalborg police station. Once your family members have received their registration certificate/residence permit, they may apply for their civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate at the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office.

EU/EEA/Swiss-citizens

If you come from an EU/EEA country or Switzerland you will find information on how registering as a resident of Denmark via the following link: EU/EEA-citizens. To apply for your registration certificate, you must visit SIRI’s Office, after which you can apply for your civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate at the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office. Family members who are EU/EEA/Swiss citizens must follow the same procedures, while family members who are non-EU/EEA citizens will need to apply for a residence permit through the immigration office at Aalborg police station. Once your non-EU/EEA family members have received their residence permit, they may apply for their civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate at the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office.

Non-EU/EEA Citizens

If you are a citizen of a non-Nordic or non-EU/EEA country, you will either complete your residency paper work through a Danish embassy abroad prior to arriving or start the process here. If you have your residence permit letter already in hand, you can go straight to the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office to apply for your civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate. If you do not, you must visit the immigration office at Aalborg police station. Once you have received your residence permit, you may then apply for your civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate at the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office.

Located at International House North Denmark is also a service called International Citizen Service (ICS). In Aalborg the ICS houses representatives of SIRI, Aalborg Kommune, WorkinDenmark, and SKAT (the tax authorities). If you are required to register for your registration certificate through SIRI, you can also use the services of the ICS during their limited opening hours each week (Mondays from 09:00 to 13:00 and Thursday from 12:00 to 16:00), and get your CPR number there instead of going to the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service. All international citizens are welcome to use the services of the other public organizations (Aalborg Kommune, WorkinDenmark, and SKAT) that are part of the ICS office.
