If you have close relatives in Denmark, you can apply for a residence permit on the grounds of family reunification.
Provided that certain requirements are met, family reunification can be granted to:
- Spouses and cohabiting partners.
- Other family members.
If you are granted a residence permit, it will be a temporary one with a possibility for extension, provided that you still meet the requirements. After a number of years, you can apply for a permanent residence permit. You must still meet the conditions for your original residence permit, as well as a number of additional requirements. Read more about permanent residence permit.
If you are granted a residence permit on the grounds of family reunification, you also have the right to work in Denmark.
