General information on residence and work permits for Denmark

DIS and SIRI share the same website: www.newtodenmark.dk. There you can find detailed information on all residence and work permits for Denmark including information about application fees payable to DIS/SIRI, individual requirements for the different types of permits, processing times and application forms (available as documents but also online forms).
