Key Points

  • The government of Denmark updated its guidelines for day-of biometric appointments


The government of Denmark introduced new guidelines for booking a preliminary work permit through the quick job start program for work permits granted under the Fast Track scheme or for visa-exempt nationals and applicants holding valid Schengen visas. Applicants will now be required to schedule biometrics appointments before 12:00 pm for an appointment request for the following day.

Preliminary work permits allow foreign national applicants who applied for work authorization to begin working while the official work permit is processed.

What are the Changes?

The Danish government will require biometric appointments to be scheduled mid-day on the day preceding the intended appointment. Previously, qualified applicants were permitted to schedule biometric appointments for the same day. According to the government announcement, this change will allow for smoother and more efficient processing times.
