Planning to move over to Skåne in August and im just preparing what’s ahead of me for getting set up etc. To get a Swedish personal number, it say you need an offer from a Swedish company to get one. I’m just wondering how people have got a personal number by working in Copenhagen I.e does a Danish contract offer work the same in Skåne to get a Swedish PN. Just to know if I can apply for jobs in Denmark too.

I understand the rest about getting the CPR number etc from Denmark after, when living in Sweden.

I’m an EU citizen.
I know Danes can just apply for a Swedish Personal number as they are from a Nordic country, but what about EU citizens?

Well I am sorry to burst yer bubble, but EU citizens cannot just apply for a Pesonnummer, even though they should be able to. (free movement and all!).
Now how that is in relation with a Danish contract in CPH, not sure; the best thing you can do is check with the authorities.

2 tips:

Record the call, and ask the name of the person that is assisting you; Sweden is notorious for giving contradicting information, and I do speak out of experience.

Thanks for the reply.

Just wondering where you got that information from saying EU citizens cannot get a personal number?

Of course you need to meet certain requirements for residency, I.e have a job or be able to suppprt yourself, but no permit is needed for EU citizens. Then your able to apply for a personal number, from what I understand.

I’ll contact the authorities in Sweden. Thank you.
