ID-Card Application

Read about how to get an ID-card at Copenhagen Airport.

Download forms

When you wish to apply for an ID-card, or if your present ID-card is close to its expiration date, you need to contact your responsible ID-card administrator at your company and together fill out an ID-card application.

The application forms are listed below as PDF-files. You can fill out the application directly online or print it out and fill it out by hand. If you choose to fill out the form by hand please do so in capital letters, so we can access the correct information. If you do so, you avoid any delays in application processes.

NOTE: the Danish government requires that both signatures on the application are original. This means that scanned documents or forwarded documents either by email or fax are not accepted. The applications must either be handed in physically or sent by surface mail to the ID-card Office.

Picking up the ID-Card

You must also complete an online Security Awareness Test before picking up your ID-card. To take the test, ask your ID card administrator for username and password.

Go to the Security Awareness Test

Your ID-card must be picked up in person at the ID-card office and bringing a picture identification (passport or drivers license). A picture for your ID-card will be taken at the same time.  Please remember to bring your old ID-card at renewal time – also if the card has expired.

NOTE: the ID-card must be collected within two months, otherwise the approval will expire.

Additional information about ID-cards

Lost ID-card

In the event of a lost ID-card, or you have changes for your existing ID-card, you must fill out a new ID-card application together with your ID-card responsible.

Bring this application with you in person to the ID-card office, and then we will handle this on the spot. 

Return of ID-card

When you no longer require your ID-card, the card must be cancelled without delay, and subsequently returned immediately either to the ID-card office, to your ID-card responsible or to one of the security guards.  Always remember to obtain a receipt to the effect that your ID-card has been returned.

Cancelled ID-card

Your ID-card must be used on a regular basis in order to remain active, this means that if an ID-card has remained inactive for three months it will be canceled (three months rule).

Your ID-card responsible will, however, always receive a reminder about inactive ID-cards prior to cancellation by CPH. The deadline for returning the cards in question is 14 days, after which time your company will be invoiced for the amount of DKK 660 excl. VAT for each ID-card that has not been returned to CPH.

NOTE! It is not a legitimate/official business just to activate an ID-card at one of the check-point card readers for the purpose of avoiding cancellation because of the ”3-months rule”.

Enter as a Visitor

If you require access to CPH less than 14 times per annum, you may enter as a visitor rather than applying for your own ID-card. In this case, you should contact the company for which you are going to work.

Renewal of various Permits

Please be aware that when renewing your ID-card all previous permits will be canceled and have to be renewed. Therefore you should remember to apply for any car pass, visitor courses, carry- and traffic permits in conjunction with the ID-card application.
