The story behind ICS

International Citizen Service is an initiative based on International Community's former One Stop Shop. This service was a cooperation between International Community and SKAT (the Danish tax agency), The Regional State Administration of Central Denmark and Citizens’ Services Aarhus. Together we initiated the first One Stop Shop service in Denmark including all three public partners.
