Denmark

If your company is sending employees to Denmark—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in Denmark, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Danish law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

Business visitors to Denmark typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa-exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen Area limits stays for visitors to 90 days in a 180-day period.

The main work authorization categories are the Pay Limit Scheme - available to highly-skilled workers; the Positive List Program - an industry-specific work authorization granted to workers in certain professions; and the Fast Track Scheme – available to highly skilled workers transferred to companies certified by the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration. If no salary threshold is set, salary and employment terms must correspond to Danish labor market standards.

Note that Nordic citizens (nationals of Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) are free to reside, study and work in Denmark.
