You should be aware that there are different rules depending on which country you are moving to Denmark from.

Entry from a Nordic country

On entry to Denmark from another Nordic country, the entry is reported to the National Register in the city you are moving to. You must appear in person at Citizen Service, where you need to present a passport or other proof of identity and information on your Nordic personal identification number.

Upon registration in Denmark you will be unsubscribed automatically from your country of emigration, as Nordic citizens can only be registered in one country.

The scheme includes the following countries:  Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Denmark.

Entry from a non-Nordic country - Nationals of an EU country or Liechtenstein

When immigrating from a non-Nordic, EU-member country (or Liechtenstein), you must appear in person at Citizen Service in the city you move to, where you need to produce a valid residence permit and passport or other identification.

Registration can only be done if you have a fixed abode, and residence must last a minimum of 3 months.

You can apply for residence in the State Administration of Central Jutland.
