EU residence document

Citizens of EU, EEA countries and Switzerland have to apply for an EU residence document if they stay for more than 3 months.

You can stay in Denmark for up to 3 months without a residence document. If you expect that your stay in Denmark will last more than 3 months, you need to apply for an EU residence document before the three months have expired.

If you are a jobseeker you can stay for up to 6 months, calculated from your day of entry, before you have to register.

An EU residence document is your proof that as an EU citizen - or as family member of an EU citizen - you have a right to reside in Denmark.

You can get a residence document if you are a:

  • worker
  • self-employed person
  • student
  • have sufficient resources
  • family member
