When moving to Denmark, you are legally obliged to apply for a CPR number, which is your personal access number to a range of services in Denmark such as opening a bank account, getting a Danish phone number, taking out insurance, paying taxes and receiving your salary.
Applying for your CPR number has been digitized in Copenhagen Municipality and 31 other municipalities in Greater Copenhagen, and as a result, you have to apply online from 1 June 2017.
