- The government of Denmark will require new salary requirements to meet Danish salary standards for a residence and work permit
The government of Denmark’s Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) announced that it would change its practices for accessing the salary requirements for residence and work permit holders applying for permit extensions. Beginning March 1, 2022, SIRI will assess whether the foreign national’s salary corresponds to the Danish salary standards when applicants apply for residence and work permit extensions or new residence and work permits.

What are the Changes?
The government of Denmark will adjust how salary requirements are set for individuals applying for extensions or new residence and work permits beginning March 1, 2022. Previously, salary requirements for residence and work permit extensions were determined based on the salary that was set in the original employment contract. SIRI will now assess whether the foreign national’s salary on the residence and work permit extension corresponds to Danish salary standards. An extension will not be granted if the pay is below the Danish standards.
