When you have found a job in Denmark, there are a couple of things you need to sort out before and after you arrive. These depend on your citizenship.

Once you have a job in Denmark, and are planning your move, you have to pay attention to the rules regarding entry and residence in Denmark.

Your citizenship determines what you need to take care of before you arrive and after you have arrived.

As a Nordic citizen or a citizen of an EU/EEA country or of Switzerland, you have the right to live and work in Denmark. When you arrive in Denmark, you have to take care of a number of practical things regarding your residency in Denmark.

All the authorities you typically need to contact are represented at International Citizen Service. So in most cases, you’ll only need to visit an ICS office in Copenhagen, Aarhus Odense or Aalborg to take care of paperwork and find answers to your questions. In other cases you have to contact the individual authorities as described on the following pages.

As a citizen from a country outside of the Nordic region, EU/EEA or Switzerland you need to have a residence and work permit before arriving in Denmark. After arriving in Denmark, you have to have to take care of a number of other practical things regarding your residency in Denmark.

In the left menu you will find out more about important actions you need to carry out before and after arriving in Denmark.
