For persons without a Danish CPR number, the settlement takes place via a link that you will receive from one of the Department's secretaries. The link gives you access to the reimbursement system, where you must fill in the relevant information. Tickets and receipts must be uploaded in the system. After submission, you will receive the payment within 2-5 business days.

For persons with a Danish CPR number, the settlement takes place via AU’s settlement system RejsUd. The secretary will ask you for information and receipts for your travel expenses. The amount will be paid out via your NEM account.
