Residence and work permit

Check if you need a residence and work permit before you start your job search

Prior to job searching, it is always a good idea to find out whether you need a residence and work permit to live and work in Denmark.

The Danish regulations on residence and work distinguish between three overall categories of citizenships:

• Citizens from Nordic countries
• Citizens from EU/EEA countries and Switzerland
• Citizens from countries outside the EU/EEA

Citizens from Nordic countries, EU/EEA and Switzerland do not need to apply for a residence and work permit.

Citizens from a country outside of the Nordic countries, the EU/EEA or Switzerland must apply for a residence and work permit. Also if you hold an EU Blue Card from another EU country.
