You can order a certificate on behalf of another person over the age of 18 with a digital power of attorney. Both you and the principal must have MitID.
How to issue a digital power of attorney
The principal can issue a digital power of attorney on borger.dk using a self-service with MitID. Once the principal has issued the digital power of attorney, the other person to whom the power of attorney has been issued, can order the certificate(s) and collect it or have it sent to his/her address.
The digital power of attorney is issued by using the self-service "Digital power of attorney" on borger.dk.
When the digital power of attorney is issued, the principal will receive a confirmation in his/her Digital Post.
The person who has received the digital power of attorney will also receive a notification in his/her Digital Post that includes information on the authorization and the period of validity.
