MitID is a central part of the Danish digital infrastructure, playing a crucial role in both our personal lives and in the business world. This guide provides a brief and concise overview of how MitID works in both contexts. It is important to note that NemID will be phased out in October 2023, and everyone will need to use MitID as the primary digital identification method thereafter.

You have two options to obtain a private MitID:
- Schedule an appointment with the Citizens' Service and remember to bring valid identification.
- You can obtain MitID by using your passport in conjunction with the MitID app. The app is capable of reading the chip in your passport, confirming your identity. This option serves as an alternative to visiting the Citizens' Service.
