How to get a BankID

Who can get a BankID
In order to obtain a BankID, you must have a Swedish Personal Identity Number, be a customer of one of the banks that issue BankID and be identified with a valid ID document. The issuing bank determine the age limit. Most commonly, you need to be either 13 or 18 years old. Under-age persons must always have parental consent.

Order BankID from your bank
Order BankID directly from your bank. The order differs slightly between different banks. Log in to your online bank and read more about how to order BankID at your bank.

Digital verification of your identity

Sometimes you may need to verify your identity an extra time. This may be requested if you want to get a new BankID digitally without visitng your bank's branch, or when you do something that requires higher security, such as a large payment. You verify your identity by scanning and tapping your Swedish passport or national ID card issued by the Swedish Police, with your smart phone. If you don't have either of these ID documents issued by the Swedish Police, you may need to visit your bank's local branch.
