How to apply for a Danish bank account with Lunar.

- What is your citizenship?
- Where were you born?
- In which country are you liable to pay taxes?
- What are your main purposes of using Lunar?
- Are you expecting to receive money from countries outside of Denmark?
- Are you expecting to send money to countries outside of Denmark?
- Do you expect to use Lunar as your only bank, your primary bank or your secondary bank?
- Do you live in Denmark?
After answering these questions, you can review the terms and conditions and confirm your request using your MitID and CPR number. After that, you will need to sign an electronic bank account contract, with the last step being to upload a photo of your passport or driver's license. The entire process should only take a few minutes.
That’s it. Once you have provided all the information that has been asked of you we will review your application so you can access your new Danish bank account as soon as possible.
