Re-entry permit

If you plan to travel abroad before you receive your residence card, you must apply to have a temporary re-entry permit affixed to your passport. You are allowed to remain in Denmark while your application for an extension is being processed. If you wish to leave Denmark while awaiting the decision, you can apply for a re-entry permit. A re-entry permit allows you to re-enter Denmark even if your residence permit has expired.

If you are a resident in the Greater Copenhagen area, you can go to the Service Centre of the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) Njalsgade 72C, Copenhagen to apply for the temporary re-entry permit.

If you live outside the Greater Copenhagen area, you may also submit your application at a district police station: List of police stations with an immigration office

Applicants are required to present their passport when submitting an application. Please note that your passport must be valid for more than 3 months after the expiration of your re-entry permit.

Fees for application process and appeals regarding au pairs, studies, and work

A foreign national must normally pay a fee when applying for residence, an extension of residence or permanent residence. This applies when applying for residence due to work, studies, au pair stays, internships, religious work and as a family member accompanying a foreign national, who works or studies in Denmark. Furthermore, a processing fee will normally need to be paid, if a person wishes to appeal a decision or request a reopening of a case.

NB! The fee must be paid by the time the application, appeal or request for reopening is submitted.

The processing fee is regulated each year on the January 1st and is indicated on the following pages:
