MitID for Foreigners and Danes abroad

Now it has become easier to get a MitID if you are Dane and live abroad or if you are a foreigner and have a connection to Denmark.

In June 2022, a new function in the MitID app made it possible to create a MitID directly in the MitID app if you had a valid Danish, Greenlandic or Faroese passport. The function has been updated so you can also use foreign passports or ID cards with a chip to create MitID directly in the app.

Consequently, it should be easier to create a MitID if you live abroad, need a MitID, but do not have a valid Danish passport.

All you will need is a valid passport/ID card and access to a phone that can scan the chip: an iPhone 7 or above or a newer Android phone.

You will continue to be able to use NemID for all public self-service solutions until NemID finally closes on 30 June 2023.
