Denmark’s international obligations
To the extent that Denmark’s international obligations, including the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, require it, an applicant may be exempt from one or more of the requirements for obtaining permanent residence.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities defines persons with disabilities as individuals who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which, in interaction with various barriers, hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.
If you have a disability that prevents you from meeting one or more of the requirements for a permanent residence permit, the requirement will be waived. Only requirements your disability prevents you from meeting will be waived.
Regardless of your situation, you must have resided in Denmark legally for five years, and you may not have been convicted of a crime.
