3 fees are incurred when submitting an application for a residence and work permit from Australia or New Zealand. Below fees are subject to change without prior notice.

1) To the Danish Immigration Service/the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration

On the 1st of January 2011 the Danish Immigration Service (DIS) and the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) introduced fees for most applications for residence and work permits for Denmark. This fee must be paid online directly to DIS or SIRI prior to submission of the application. The receipt for this payment must be included in the supporting documentation when the application is submitted.

For individual application fees please see For information on how to pay the fee please see:

Explanation: This fee covers the case processing and decision making by DIS or SIRI.

2) To the Danish Consulate General in Sydney

When an application is submitted (online or in person) from Australia or New Zealand the Danish Consulate General in Sydney is the local Danish authority that forwards the application and/or biometric data to DIS or SIRI. This involvement of the Consulate General in Sydney incurs a consular fee according to The Executive Order on Payment for Services provided by the Danish Foreign Service. The current consular fee can be found by clicking here.

From 1 July 2019 residence and work permit consular fees should be paid online using the link here. The receipt of payment of the consular fee for residence and work should be submitted at the VFS Global when you hand in your passport, relevant documentation and supply biometrics.

Explanation: The consular fee covers the Danish Consulate General in Sydney's involvement in the forwarding of the application and/or biometric data to DIS or SIRI, the check of the original passport and the forwarding of the decision from DIS/SIRI to the applicant. In case the decision is granted with authorisation to issue a D-Visa sticker in the applicant's passport, the consular fee covers the issuance of the visa sticker too.
