New Rules for Permanent Residence and Family Reunification

New Rules for Permanent Residence and Family Reunification: “A Denmark that stand together.” The government will propose a series of changes in immigration and integration, including changes to the rules for family reunification, permanent residency and citizenship.

These changes might have implications for the conditions you must meet in order to achieve family reunification, permanent residency, citizenship, etc.

® Denmark will introduce a “stay staircase model” where Foreigners in Denmark can always get one step closer to becoming fully integrated into Danish society.

® The Government will abolish the current points system for permanent residence.

® In future, Denmark will provide clear requirements that motivate the individual foreigner to integration – instead of setting barriers that bring foreigners in Denmark farther away from our community.

® Therefore, permanent residence could be achieved after five years. The requirement is that the applicant has had three years full-time employment within the past five years. Education equivalent to full-time employment, as a part-time throughout the period will meet the requirement.

® The requirement for Danish test changed so the applicant must have passed an exam Danish equivalent for Danish first.

® Citizenship test is abolished.

® The other requirements for obtaining permanent residence, including the current requirement to stay out of crime have public debt, implement induction program and implement employment-looking activities are maintained.

® Foreigners with refugee status must achieve exemption from the general rules after 8 years of residence, except from criminality requirements.

® The labor market is an important pathway to integration. Therefore, the government will work to ensure that refugees and wife reunited as quickly as possible get a job. The government wants a model that can support the goal of high participation rate among spouses reunited.

® Among other things, the government will investigate whether refugees and spouse reunified who have had regular full-time employment for 12 months and which has also been unemployment benefits, must have special conditions to preserve the temporary residence permit.

® Foreigners vote in local elections after 3 years.

® The Government will send the clear signal that foreigners who have lived in Denmark for several years and where integration is successful, may become Danish citizens.

® These requirements must be high for Danish citizenship is something special. However, the requirements must not exclude those who make an effort, simply because they do not have a sufficiently high education. And people who have lived in Denmark for many years, should not meet a test where requirements are higher than what many Danes. But the government attaches importance to seekers have not committed any crime.

® In order to obtain Danish citizenship, the applicant now have passed Danish 2 and a citizenship test that emphasizes aspects of everyday life and the active political life, facing citizens in a modern society.

® Applicants must also now have been self-supporting within 2 ½ years of the last 5 years.

® Young was born and raised in Denmark and composed as primary school with average grade 2 offered automatically granted Danish citizenship, unless they are convicted of serious crimes. Young people who are born and raised in Denmark, however, regardless passed the primary exam offered automatic citizenship as 18-year-old, unless those convicted of serious crimes.

® It must be possible to have dual citizenship.

  9. Hi mfaisalctg,
    Its nice to know more about Danish GC, thanks.
    Recently I know that I am eligible for DGC.
    I want to know once I got DGC if I go for further study then how much fee I have to pay, same as international student or domestic one (1/4)?
    Please answer if anyone know.

    • If you have DGC, its pretty hard to do study and job in the parallel way because after getting DGC, you have to do work to get your permanent residentship, after getting PR, the education is free for you. But as a DGC holder you have to pay for study as an international non-EU/EEA citizen.
