New MitID process that requires a witness, challenges new international employees

The new MitID challenges many new international employees who are asked to visit Citizen Service and bring a witness to get MitID. As a result, you may be asked to act as a witness for a new international colleague.

Why might I be asked to be a witness?

It is a challenge for new international employees to find a person who can testify to their identity when they are new in Denmark and do not yet know their colleagues. Therefore, they will naturally choose to ask the people they have been in contact with at AU in connection with their employment: the department secretary, the centre administrator, the team leader, etc.
