How to apply

From 1 July 2019, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark including all Danish diplomatic missions are introducing online payment of the embassy fee for residence or work permit.

The embassy fee should be paid online using this link https://dys.um.dk/permit/

The receipt for the payment should be submitted at the Danish Visa Application Centre (VFS) when you hand in your passport, relevant documentation and supply biometrics. Please note that in R/W permit cases there are three fees to be paid. 1) The fee to either The Danish Immigration Service or The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI), 2) the fee to the Danish embassy (using the link https://dys.um.dk/permit/) and 3) the fee to the Danish Visa Application Centre (VFS).

Which residence permit application forms are needed depends on the purpose of coming to Denmark. Please use the Immigration Service application form guide to download and fill out the correct form here. When applying for any kind of residence permit or extension of a residence permit you will need to first create a case order ID and pay online here.

Before handing in your application, make sure that you have all required documentation. Please see the checklist inside the application form for requirements and make sure that all documentation is complete before you submit your application.

The application can be handed in at the Embassy's outsourcing partner VFS Global in either London, Manchester or Edinburgh. No appointment is necessary.VFS Global
