Step 1

Book an appointment with SIRI (the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration) in order to receive your EU residence document.

Do not book an appointment before you have actually arrived in Denmark. 

Please know, that an EU residence document is only required if your stay in Denmark exceeds 3 months. 

Please note: If you had already booked an appointment on January 26 or February 9 to register at Dokk1, this appointment has been automatically cancelled due to Covid19-restrictions. You must therefore use the above link to register for a new appointment with SIRI.  

Step 2

Go to your appointment at Dokk1, Hack Kampmanns Plads 2, 8000 Aarhus C. You must wear a face mask when entering Dokk1.

You need to bring the following in order to obtain an EU residence document:


1: Your original Passport / National ID
Must state your place of birth

2: 1 copy of your passport/ID
Must be a clear, complete and readable printed copy of the datapage. For ID cards: both sides.

3: 1 passport photo
Must be 3,5 x 4,5 cm, clear, in focus, be in clear contrast to the background, no red eyes.

4: Application form OD1 and declaration of self support
Print the application below and fill in page 1-10 before appearing at Dokk1. Sign the form and write the date you will be attending the registration event at Dokk1.


After your registration for an EU residence document at Dokk1, SIRI will guide you to the next step: obtaining a CPR number (Danish social security number). Please note that you are only entitled to a CPR number if your stay in Denmark exceeds 3 months. 


Do you have questions?

An EU residence document is proof of a right that you, as an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen, have when you enter Denmark, if you meet the conditions for grounds for residence under EU rules. This means you have the right to reside, work or study in Denmark with or without an EU residence document.

However, you need the EU residence document to get a CPR number. With the CPR number you are entitled to all public healthcare benefits (going to the doctor, hospital etc.)

At your registration at Dokk1 the state authority SIRI will provide you with the EU residence document (provided that you have all required documents with you) and Citizen Service from the municipality of Aarhus will then issue you with a CPR number (you must have applied online for a CPR number before appearing at Dokk1 and bring all required documents)

When you get your EU residence document in your hand by the state authority SIRI, please check that your name, birthday and nationality is correct.

If you have questions regarding the EU residence document, please contact the state authority SIRI (Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration).
