Family Reunification

If you have close relatives in Denmark, you can apply for a residence permit on the grounds of family reunification.

New family reunification rules for spouses will apply from 15th May 2012. Please see the website of the Danish Immigration Service for further information Nye regler for ægtefællesammenføring (Danish only).

As from 21st May 2012 Danish residence cards must contain biometrics (digital photograph & signature and fingerprints of 10 fingers). When you hand in your application, the embassy will record your biometrics at the same time.
Children under 6 (age 6 minus 1 day) are not required to give fingerprints.

Please note the following;

The application should normally be submitted in your country of origin. However, if you have been staying in another country as a resident for more than 3 months, the application may be submitted in that country.

Please visit the website of the Danish Immigration Service for general information on family reunification.

Family Reunification applications must be submitted in person (including children).

Please read the instructions on the front of the form carefully and answer all questions before making an application.
