NemKonto for citizens

All citizens in Denmark are required to have a NemKonto to receive payments from public authorities.

How to assign a foreign bank account as your NemKonto

With MitID

The easiest way to get at foreign NemKonto, is to use your MitD on the 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’.

MitID is a Danish secure login you can use, whether you are doing your online banking, receiving mail from public authorities or engaging with one of the many businesses that use MitID. You do not need to be a Danish citizen to obtain MitID, but you need to have a CPR-number and valid identification.

If you do not have MitID and would like to obtain it, please visit

Additional information
When assigning a NemKonto, The Agency for Digital Government  will verify that you, as a permitted signee, can assign a NemKonto, but no verification will be made as to whether payments to the assigned NemKonto, accounting-wise or taxation law-wise, temporarily or permanently, can be placed in the assigned account.
