Welcome to Global-Migrate, UK’s most trusted name in Denmark Visas and Immigration.
Denmark is the southernmost of the Nordic countries, located southwest of Sweden and south of Norway. Germany is on the south of Denmark. The country consists of a large peninsula, Jutland and many islands, as well as hundreds of minor islands often referred to as the Danish Archipelago.
Denmark has recently become one of the most active members of the European Union which is giving Skilled foreign workers an opportunity to work in their country. Denmark’s immigration policy is very similar to the HSMP or the Tier 1 General category in the United Kingdom’s skilled immigration options which is not available to foreign nationals anymore. Denmark Immigration uses a point’s based system, namely, the Danish Green Card to attract foreign skilled workers to come work in the EU. Apart from this, Denmark also has a work permit system called the Positive List scheme which allows foreign nationals with a valid job offer from a Danish employer to work in Denmark.
Green Card Scheme
The Greencard scheme allows you to work in Denmark without any restrictions. This is a points based application and you need to score a minimum of a 100 pints based on your age, education, language and work experience. A residence permit under the Greencard scheme gives you the right to carry out paid or unpaid work. However, the Ministry of Integration clearly specifies that this permit does not give you the right to work as a self-employed person i.e. you run your own business. You must also be able to prove that you can financially support yourself during your first year in Denmark.
