Please note that the following information is aimed at Nordic students in Denmark.
If, as a Nordic citizen, you move to Denmark and remain there for less than six months, it is not normally regarded as a relocation.
If you wish, however, you can be registered with the National Register in Denmark if you are going to be in the country for at least three months.
If you are not registered in Denmark, you are still covered by your home country's health insurance.
However, you are of course entitled to medical treatment in Denmark in urgent cases.
If you will be staying in Denmark for more than six months, you must be registered in the National Register in the municipality where you live.
Once you have been registered, you will receive a health card that entitles you to treatment in the Danish hospital service.
It is important that you remember to be registered before the six months have passed – otherwise you may end up in a situation in which you are neither covered by the health insurance in Denmark nor in your home country.
If you know that you will be in Denmark for more than six months, it is a good idea to be registered as soon as possible.
