How to apply

If you wish to apply for a Danish residence and work permit, the procedure depends on which type of permit you apply for. A series of application forms has been developed for specific types of applications.

The applicant (the foreign national) and the employer in Denmark (if applicable) should select the application form based on whether the applicant wants a residence and work permit as an employee, as a self-employed person, or under the Greencard scheme.

There is also an application form for accompanying family members.
