A processing fee must normally be paid when a foreign national applies for a residence permit in the following case types:
Work, studies, au pair, interns, accompanying family member of a person working or studying in Denmark.
A fee must also be paid when submitting an application for an extension of a residence permit or a permanent residence permit, or when submitting an appeal or request to reopen a case in the above-mentioned case types.
Processing fees are regulated on 1 January 2014
If you plan to apply for a residence permit or an extension of a residence permit based on work or studies around 1 January 2014, please note that processing fees are regulated on 1 January 2014.
If you wish to apply before the fees are regulated, you must both pay the fee and submit your application before 1 January 2014. In other words, it is the date on which you submit your application to the Danish Agency for Labour Retention and International Recruitment, 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 2014, but submit your application after 1 January 2014, you will have paid less than the required fee, and your application will be rejected, that is, it will not be processed. It is not possible to create a Case Order ID with the 2014 fee prior to 1 January 2014.
If you have created a Case Order ID before 1 January 2014 but have not yet used the Case Order ID to paid the fee, then the fee connected to the Case Order ID will automatically change to the 2014 amount so that you will pay the correct fee.
The processing fees for applying for a residence permit are regulated every year on 1 January.
For IT technical reasons, the payment solution is closed from 31 December 2013 11.59 p.m. to 1 January 2014 11.59 p.m. In this period of time, it will not be possible to pay the fee with a Dankort or credit card via the payment solution.
