How To Relocate To Denmark In Just 10 Days




If you have a job offer, you can start a process of job relocation and immigration to Denmark.

Your Danish employer may provide you with temporary accommodation for up to 4 months, reimburse flights, visa application fees, expenses related to transportation of personal belongings, as well as offer assistance with finding a permanent rental home. Ask your employer to learn about specific conditions that apply to you.

The process of job relocation to Denmark consists of several steps.

  1. Apply for a visa

If you’re a citizen of a European Economic Area (EEA) country (including the EU countries plus Iceland, Lichtenstein, and Norway), you don’t need a visa to enter Denmark. Other visa-free countries include the following:

Europe: Andorra, North Macedonia, San Marino, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Vatican

Asia-Pacific: Australia, Brunei, East Timor, Japan, Kiribati, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, New Zealand, Northern Marianas, Palau, Samoa, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Korea, Taiwan, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu

North America: Canada, Mexico, United States

South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela

Central America: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama

Caribbean: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago

Western Asia: Georgia, Israel, United Arab Emirates

Africa: Mauritius, Seychelles

Others need to apply for a Schengen visa to a Danish embassy/consulate or visa center in their country of residence. You may need to register, fill out an application, and pay fees on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark’s website before visiting the consulate or visa center in person.

You will need the following documents to apply for a Danish visa:


One or two recent color photos (35 mm × 45 mm)

Invitation letter from your Danish employer with its contact details, your personal information, the purpose of the journey, the period and place of stay

Travel insurance covering the entire Schengen area for the duration of your stay with the minimum coverage of €30,000

Job offer

Proof that you have available accommodation in Denmark

Flight reservations

Proof that you have sufficient means to cover your living expenses (bank statements, payslips for the last 3 months)

Printed visa fee receipt (€35–80 depending on the country)

Birth certificates for your children, if applicable

When you submit your application, you will normally need to have your fingerprints recorded.

The process of getting a visa takes anywhere from 10 days to 3 weeks.

The length of stay on a visa must not exceed 90 days in any 6 months period. So you will need to apply for a residence permit as soon as possible.
