How to assign a foreign bank account as your NemKonto

With NemID
The easiest way to get at foreign NemKonto, is to use NemID on our Self-service. Click ’Log ind som borger’ in the box on the right labeled ’Selvbetjening’. From there you can assign a foreign bank account as your NemKonto by clicking ’udenlandsk NemKonto’.

You do not need to be a Danish citizen to obtain NemID, but you need to have a CPR-number and valid identification.
