Residence and Work Permits for Interns

Danish residence cards must now contain biometrics (digital photograph & signature and fingerprints of 10 fingers) and all applications for a Danish residence permit must therefore be handed in in person at a VFS Office:
http://dk.vfsglobal.co.uk/permitslongstay90.html 
VFS is the Embassy of Denmark's outsourcing partner for visas and residence permits. When you hand in your application, VFS will record your biometrics at the same time.

Children under 6 (age 6 minus 1 day) are not required to give fingerprints.

 

Please note the following

  • You will require a "Case Order ID" (obtainable online) and pay a fee (payable online) before submitting your application to the VFS Centre. The application fee is payable to the Danish Agency for Labour Market and Recruitment in addition to the VFS service charge and fee charged by the Embassy. Please see the website of the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration for further information: Fees
  • Processing fees will be regulated every year on 1 January

    If you plan to apply for a residence permit or an extension of a residence permit based on work or studies around 1 January, please note that processing fees are regulated every year on 1 January.

    If you wish to apply before the fees are regulated, you must both pay the fee and submit your application before 1 January. In other words, it is the date on which you submit your application to the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration, to the Danish police, or at a Danish diplomatic mission, which decides the amount of the fee.

    If you pay the fee before 1 January , but submit your application after 1 January, you will have paid less than the required fee, and consequently, your application may be rejected, that is, it will not be processed.
       

  • Applications should normally be made in your home country or in the country where you are currently residing. 

  • Please visit the website of the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration www.newtodenmark.dk  for general information on residence and work permits for interns.
