Working in Denmark

Denmark is a European Union member state, so foreign nationals from the EU do not require a work permit or visa to live and work there. Citizens from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Nordic countries (Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden) can also reside and work in Denmark without obtaining a work permit.

The type of visa needed—or whether any visa is needed for working in Denmark—is determined by the citizen’s home country, the duration of stay, and the type of work being done by the foreign national employee.

For short-term business visits of less than 90 days, most foreign nationals can apply for and a secure a short-term Type C Schengen Visa before entering Denmark, but all other employment requires work authorization. Generally, securing a work permit also allows you to reside in Denmark legally.

Employers and employees should be mindful of the required documentation in their application to work in Denmark, including understanding regulations about official employment letters and minimum salary requirements, which are sometimes needed.
