An EU residence document is proof of a right that you have as an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen 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.

You need the EU residence document in order to get a CPR number. 

The EU residence document is issued by SIRI (The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration).

From the link below, you can read about how to apply, rights and regulations, and any other questions you may have about the EU residence document.

You must submit your application for an EU residence document in person at one of SIRI's branch offices. In Aarhus the office is located at:
