Key Points

  • Denmark temporarily pauses UK citizen applications without valid excuses but continues processing those with reasonable explanations


The government of Denmark will temporarily hold applications from UK citizens who failed to meet the deadline without a valid excuse but will continue to process applications with reasonable explanations.

As a result, the government will temporarily pause pending applications for new residence documents submitted by UK citizens and dependent family members that were submitted after December 31, 2021, with no reasonable purpose for having yet to meet the deadline due to BREXIT.

The government will continue to process pending applications submitted with the reasonable purpose for not meeting the deadline.

What are the Changes?

The government of Denmark aims to resolve the issue of UK citizens and their relatives who missed the deadline to apply for new residence documents under the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement on December 31, 2021. The proposed solution will only cover UK citizens legally residing in Denmark under EU freedom of movement rules before the end of the transition period on December 31, 2020.
