Questions about moving to Denmark

by Aravindan Ayyaswamy

Hello there,

I have a couple of queries to ask: To be eligible for registering for CPR,what is the 'sq.m' required per person to rent in Denmark as per danish rules. Is it not possible to apply for CPR with a stay less than 20sq.m per person? Where could I find these details about room/house measurements.

Hello, Thanks for your response. My query: Is it possible to stay in B&B or home stay or even in Danhostel for 2-3 days and apply for CPR?
Will it be considered a hotel stay which doesn't allow me to apply for CPR? Please advise me.
Kind regards,

You will have to have a permanent resident and a hotel or hostel does not meet does requirements. There are small hotels that rent for long term that do apply. One such place in Copenhagen is Pension 94 on Vesterbrogade 94. They rent small to medium size rooms. You sign a min 1 month contract and that is enough to satisfy the government. I have never heard that there is a min size required. On my very first stays in Copenhagen, I rented a room there and it was SMALL and got my CPR card without ever being asked for its size. Just showed my lease contract and that was it.

You must a signed lease and not a hotel reservation. You can also let out a room in someone's home as long as you have a signed lease.

Hope that helps.
