Brexit: The Danish government will extend the deadline for submitting an application for the right to reside in Denmark based on the Withdrawal Agreement
On 27 March 2023, the Danish government has stated that the deadline for submitting an application, which was originally set for 31 December 2021, will be extended until the end of 2023.
At the moment, SIRI cannot state when the new deadline will come into effect. Until the new deadline comes into effect, SIRI will continue to process cases where the assessment is that there are reasonable reasons for submitting the application late. Applications where the assessment is that there are no reasonable reasons for submitting the application late will for now continue to be put on hold.
It continues to be a requirement that the conditions for residence based on the Withdrawal Agreement must be met, incl. that the applicant must have taken legal residence in Denmark under EU regulations on free movement before the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020. This means that applicants whose application has already been processed and refused, because the conditions for residence based on the Withdrawal Agreement have not been met, cannot have their application processed again.
