Residence/Work Permit

When you apply for residence or work permit for Denmark (R/W permit), you will need to supply documentation and biometrics for your application. If you live outside Denmark, you must pay a fee to the Danish embassy or consulate that should handle your application.
The services performed by the Danish embassy/consulate in regards to R/W permit application covers:

  • Transfer of biometric features and possible application documents to the Danish authority that will process your application
  • If further information from you is requested by the Danish authorities, the embassy/consulate will contact you
  • If an interview with you is required by the Danish authorities, the embassy/consulate will conduct an interview
  • In case a permit is granted, the embassy/consulate will issue a visa sticker for your passport

Please note that:

  • A fee paid on the website to either the Danish Immigration Service or the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration for their processing of your application does not include the services provided by the Danish embassy/consulate abroad.
  • The Visa Application Centers charge a fee for their service regarding scanning of passport and other documents and recording of biometrics.
