Guide for purchasing a fishing licence

Step 1: Choose duration of validation

Choose between:

  • Day
  • Week
  • Year

If you choose a day or week pass you can state the start date up to 30 days forward.

Step 2: Fill out your information

Fill out civil registration number, name and address for the person using the licence. E-mail address is also required in order for you to receive the digital licence.

Step 3: Decide if you wish to have a plastic card (not a requirement)

The plastic card has the size and quality of a credit card. You can easily bring the card along making sure you remember your fishing number. The price of the card is DKK 15 and it will be sent you within 14 days after the purchase.

The period of validation will not appear at the plastic card. The period of validation lasts as long as the fishing number is prolonged. The starting date is the day of the purchase.

You will keep your fishing number and do not need to purchase another plastic card when the number is prolonged.

Step 4: Place your purchase in the shopping bag

Now it is possible to buy more fishing licences for your family or friends before moving on to the payment. Note that each member of a household must have their own licence.

Step 5: Check your purchase

Are the information right?

Step 6: Confirm your purchase by entering credit card information
