Digital Post is a part of the cross-governmental digital service infrastructure in Denmark. Digital Post enables public authorities to communicate securely and digitally with citizens and businesses – and vice versa.
Introduction to Digital Post
As a leading digital nation, there is a statutory requirement in Denmark that citizens and businesses must be able to receive Digital Post from the authorities.
Digital Post from public authorities may include: letters from the hospital, information about student grant (SU), changes in housing benefits, assignment of day-care facility place, letters from the Central Customs and Tax Administration (SKAT) etc.
Correspondence received through this digital service is just as binding as time limits, contracts, and signed documents sent on paper with a stamp. Since sensitive data is exchanged often, safety is an important key word.
Those who are unable to communicate digitally can continue receiving and sending mail in a non-digital way.
