Many foreign nationals are free to live and work in Denmark. However, some are required to hold a residence and work permit - this is the case for Kazakhstan citizens. The specific requirements in connection with living and working in Denmark depend, first and foremost, on a person’s nationality and qualifications.
It is your own responsibility to obtain a work permit if you are required to. If you work illegally in Denmark, you risk deportation, and you and your employer risk fine or imprisonment.
Normally, professional or labour market considerations must warrant a residence and work permit, for example, if there is a lack of persons in Denmark who can carry out a specific type of work. Read general information about salaried work.
The rules also apply in the case of voluntary/unpaid work.
