Key Points

  • On June 1, 2023, Denmark moved certain immigration application types online to create a more efficient and complete application process


As of June 1, 2023, the government of Denmark requires that the following immigration application types be completed online:

  • Applications for residence and work permits issued to salaried workers or PhD students
  • Applications submitted by family members of a foreign national seeking to study or work in Denmark
  • Internship applications and work applications submitted for foreign nationals intending to work in Denmark under certain medical occupations and more

The Danish government will reject any applications falling under these categories that are not submitted online. Only under specific circumstances are applicants exempt from the requirement to complete the online application form.

What are the Changes?

The government of Denmark now requires specific work and residence permit applications to be submitted online. According to the government announcement, these measures will ensure all relevant information is provided on the initial application. Afterward, all completed information will be transferred to the agency’s case processing systems. This provides faster and more flexible case processing.

Looking Ahead
