Brexit: The deadline for submission of application expires 31 December 2023
The deadline for submission of application for residence document under the Withdrawal Agreement between EU and the United Kingdom has been extended to 31 December 2023. British citizens and their family members covered by the Withdrawal Agreement must be aware of applying before the end of the year.
Who is covered by the extended deadline?
It is a requirement that you meet the conditions for residence under the Withdrawal Agreement, including having had legal residence in accordance with the EU rules on free movement before 31 December 2020. The extended deadline does not change that.
Individuals who already have residence in Denmark under the Withdrawal Agreement should not apply again.
The extended deadline applies for individuals who have not previously submitted an application.
The extended deadline also applies to applicants who have submitted their applications after the original deadline expired on 31 December 2021 and therefore have received a rejection to have their application processed.
How do I apply?
British citizens and their family members who do not already hold a residence document in Denmark under the Withdrawal Agreement must submit an application – SIRI is not going to send out individual information letters.
You can submit your application by following the procedure on the application page Brexit There you can also read more about the conditions for having residence under the Withdrawal Agreement and be guided through the application process.
If you previously have received a rejection to have your application processed by SIRI and the Immigration Appeals Board due to submitting the application too late, you can, based on the extended deadline, ask SIRI to have you case reopened. The same applies if you have not appealed the rejection to the Immigration Appeals Board.
