Have you ever considered a move to Denmark? Are you currently looking to expand your work and life skills in a new country? Why not look into a Danish visa or Danish green card. Visit the Immigration to Denmark official website and consider the information on Danish work permits and immigration into Denmark. Look up the Denmark immigration point’s calculator and see if you qualify.
A visa is issued for the purpose of a short stay (less than 3 months) in Denmark and other Schengen countries. Employment is not permitted during the stay covered by the visa. Foreign citizens who are exempted from basic visa requirements can stay, but not work, in the Schengen region up to 3 months.
A visa grants you the right to spend a maximum of 90 days per 6 months in the Schengen region. For further information on the countries covered within the Schengen Region visit the Danish Immigration website.
Filing your application and Formalities
These are processed in Copenhagen and Danish Missions, such as Embassies and consulates. Applications can be downloaded form the Danish Immigration Website or from the Embassy or Consulate that you wish to file your application.
Some visa applications and documents can be legalised whilst you wait. Often though, a number of documents need to be held by the Immigration department for short periods of time. These documents can be collected again, usually the following day. Alternatively these documents can be forwarded if a stamped addressed envelop has been provided.
The fee of DKK 185- for each legalisation process can be paid in cash in Danish kroner, by cheque, or by Dankort. Foreign currencies, credit cards are not accepted.
Documents that are to be legalised can also be sent by post to:
Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Asiatisk Plads 2
DK-1448 Copenhagen K
Visas can be authorised within days but this depends of the reason for the visit. Other applications can take a while longer and information on Danish visa rules are also available from the Danish Immigration website.
Residence and Work Permits
Detailed information on the rules of governing residence (this includes stays that are longer than 3 months) or work permits for Denmark are available on the website. All applicants for residence cards need to contain a digital photograph, fingerprints and signature.
Further information on the Biometric Residence and Work Permits, along with information on foreigners and integration into Denmark is also available online.
