• International Citizen Service (ICS) – all the service you need in one place

    There’s a lot to take care of when you arrive in Denmark as a foreign employee, job seeker or student. But International Citizen Service (ICS) is there to help.

    We make the contact to Danish authorities as easy as possible – for you, your partner, and for Danish companies that employ foreign employees.

    All the authorities you typically need to contact are represented at ICS. So in most cases, you’ll only need to visit an ICS office in order to take care of your paperwork and find answers to your questions.

    Employers are welcome to contact the local ICS to inquire about the best  time a day for visiting ICS.

    Good luck with your planning and welcome to Denmark!

    Please note that International Citizen Service will be closed due to Christmas and New Year as follows:
    Odense: From 21st of December 2015 until 5th of January 2016
    Aarhus: From 21st  of December 2015 until 7th of January 2016
    Aalborg: From 23rd of December 2015 until 5th of January 2016
    Copenhagen : From 24th of December 2015 until 4th of January 2016

    Futhermore please note that an immediate issuance of EU registration certificates cannot be expected at the State Administration (Statsforvaltningen) at ICS in Copenhagen due to an overload of inquires at the moment. You can also apply for your EU registration certificate at the State Administration on Ellebjergvej 52, 2450 Copenhagen SV (Opening ours).
