Leaving Denmark

There are several authorities you need to inform upon departure.

Here is a list to help you with the procedures you need to complete before leaving Denmark.

TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS

Before you leave please make sure that your coordinator knows where to send your Transcript of Records. You must provide your coordinator with the exact details of where to send the Transcript - either your home address or an address at your university. Please note that at most departments the Transcript of Records will not be ready until late June for spring semester/late March for fall semester.


Please notice: All BSS students will automatically receive a transcript of records in March for Fall semester/August for spring semester. Therefore, BSS students do not need to contact their International Coordinator to arrange this.

CPR - DEREGISTRATION

If you leave Denmark (holidays excepted) you have to deregister from the Civil Registration System (CPR). This must be done online at www.lifeindenmark.dk if you have a NemID. 

If you do not have a NemID please write an email to folkeregister@aarhus.dk including your name, birthday (not the entire cpr number), address in Denmark, date of leaving Denmark and information about the country you move to.

You can deregister 4 weeks before departure. The limit of notification is 5 days after departure!

DANISH SOCIAL SECURITY

When you leave the country you are no longer covered by the Danish Social security.

Remember to destroy your health insurance card.

TAX

If you have had a job in Denmark and move abroad your taxability has to be determined. In this case you must inform the tax authorities.

HOLIDAY PAY

If you have had a job in Denmark you must contact ATP in order to receive your holiday pay.

POST DANMARK

Report your departure and your new address using your NemID access at this link.

If you do not have a NemID you should fill out this form and sign it (the form in the link is a translated version of the official Danish version, which you are welcome to use if you do not understand the Danish version).
After printing and signing the form, you must scan the signed version of the form along with an example of your picture identification (e.g. your passport or drivers licence) and send both to this email: flyt@post.dk

Letters are sent to your new address for 6 months. Newspapers, magazines and parcels are not sent abroad.

OTHERS TO INFORM

Inform your insurance company and your bank.
