Live in Denmark

Live in Denmark

As a general rule, a visa is only designed for short term visits to Denmark; if you plan on staying for a longer period, or even permanently, you will need to apply for a residence permit.

If your application for a residence permit is granted, you will be issued with a card as proof. This card is your documentation that you have the right to live in Denmark and you therefore should make every effort not to lose it.

However, the residence card is not just simple proof that you have the right to live in Denmark, it also carries a whole host of biometric data which is embedded on a small microchip.

Since May 2012, all non EEA/EU citizens who apply for a residence permit have been required to provide biometric data in the form of a facial image and fingerprints. The same rules apply not just for new applications to live in Denmark, but also extensions and permanent requests too.

As the applicant, you obviously have to present yourself for the biometric data to be taken. If you are applying for your residence permit in person, either at a consulate or embassy, or at a Danish police station, the biometric features will be recorded along with your signature when you are there. If you decline to have your biometric data taken, your residence application will not proceed any further and will be refused.

However, there are many ways to apply for a residence permit which does not require you to appear in person. Using an immigration consultant, email, fax, the online form or post are all perfectly acceptable ways of applying to live in Denmark.

Of course, whilst all of these ways to apply to live in Denmark may be far more convenient than applying in person, it means that you won't have submitted the necessary biometric data. Therefore, in order for your application to live in Denmark to continue to be processed, you have a very short period – just 14 days – to appear in person and supply the required information.

Your application will not begin to be processed until you have supplied your biometric data and if this does not take place within the required 14 days, you will be refused enter and live in Denmark.

When presenting to supply your biometric data, you will also need to take some documentation to tie in your appointment with your application. In the case of internet or digital applications, you should take along a receipt which confirms online acceptance. If you posted your application, you will need to take a copy of the first three pages that you completed.

However you decided to submit your application to live in Denmark, you will also need to take along your passport for identity verification purposes as well.
