Registration upon arrival
EU/EEA citizens can reside freely in Denmark for up to three months without registering with the public authorities. If you seek employment, you can stay for up to six months.
If you expect to stay for longer than the three or six month limit, you must apply in person for an EU residence document (registration certificate).
Non-nordic citizens are required to hold a work and residence permit to work or conduct research in Greenland or at the Faroe Islands. Special conditions apply and the processing time is 3 months. Contact the International Staff Unit for further information.
