What are the visa requirements for students?
The visa requirements for studying in Denmark is dependent on your country of origin. If you are from any of the Nordic countries i.e. Norway, Sweden or Finland, you can study in the country without the need for any documentation. You will only need a personal identification number which will be given to you when you submit your passport or any other personal identification on arrival.
If you belong to the EU or EEA or Switzerland, you can stay in Denmark for up to three months if you have a valid passport. However, if you plan to stay for more than three months, you will need a Danish registration certificate. With this certificate you will get a personal identification number which is essential if you want to work in the country.
If you are not from the EU or EEA, you will require a permit to study in Denmark. The kind of permit will depend on the duration of your stay. If you are planning to stay here for less than three months, you will need a visa and for a longer stay of more than three months you will need a residence permit. Here are more details:
Visa for short term stay
You can apply for this visa at the Danish embassy or consulate in your country. This visa however does not allow you to work in Denmark.
Residence permit for long-term stay
If you must stay in Denmark for more than three months for your studies, then you will have to apply for a residence permit. You can make the application at the Danish embassy in your home country. With the residence permit, students can work in Denmark for 20 hours per week.
The residence permit will be valid for the duration of your program, so you need not bother about renewing it during your program. It is better to begin your application process three months before you travel to Denmark.
