Family Reunification and work permits


A residence permit is given only upon approval by the Danish Immigration Service in Copenhagen – the process may take 4-6 months. Such a permit will be valid for Denmark only, not the entire Schengen-area. Application forms can be downloaded here. (Please note that each of the Immigration Service’s application forms for Danish residence and work permits have been developed for a specific type of applicant.)

Further information can be found at the website of the Danish Immigration Service.
