To apply for your registration certificate, you must visit the State Administration office, after which you canapply for your civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate at the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office.

If you are a citizen of a non-Nordic or non-EU/EEA country, you will either complete your residency paper work through a Danish embassy abroad prior to arriving or start the process here. If you have your residence permit letter already in hand, you can go straight to the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service office to apply for your civil registration number (CPR number) and a health security certificate. If you do not, you must visit the immigration office at Aalborg police station.

Located at the State Administration office is also a service called International Citizen Service (ICS). In Aalborg the ICS houses representatives of the State Administration, Aalborg Kommune, WorkinDenmark, and SKAT (the tax authorities). If you are required to register for your registration certificate through the State Administration, you can also use the services of the ICS during their limited opening hours each week (Tuesdays from 11:00 to 15:00 and Thursday from 13:00 to 17:00), and get your CPR number there instead of going to the Aalborg Kommune Citizen Service. All international citizens are welcome to use the services of the other public organizations (Aalborg Kommune, WorkinDenmark, and SKAT) that are part of the ICS office.
