Important Considerations To Obtain Danish Green Card


Danish immigration is an all-attractive proposition for people who want to seek residence in a country with a prosperous economy and an egalitarian society. The interested applicants can seek Danish immigration through a resident and work permit.

After getting the green card, it’s the responsibility of the immigrant to seek a job in this nation. We at Visa House offer complete aid to the candidates in evaluating their eligibility and getting approved for this kind of Denmark immigration. It’s important to understand that this permit does not entitle an immigrant to start self-employment in this nation.


It’s important for a foreigner applying for this kind of Denmark immigration to prove that his education levels are equivalent to the Danish education.

Any candidate holding higher education from a foreign country will have his education assessed by the Danish Agency for Higher Education. The decision whether your education needs assessment from this agency is taken by Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration.

The criteria for evaluation of your education have been set by Danish Agency for Higher Education.

The highest point score of 80 points after evaluation by this agency is given to the PhD degree holders.

An immigration applicant under this category can get a high score of 30 points provided he has a bachelor’s degree. For a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree of one year duration, a 50 point score can be gained. The master’s degree of a longer duration than one year will get you a point score of 60 points which also requires an individual assessment in case if the applicant holds a Masters of Philosophy degree.

Financial obligations

The most important requirement for any applicant for this visa is to prove that he has a lump sum amount of 131,616 Danish Krone which is equivalent to the unemployment benefit for those above 30 years of age in this nation.

Language skills

The visa candidate also needs to prove his eligibility for this green card application by appearing for Danish language tests at three levels (level 1, level 2 and level 3) or their Swedish or Norwegian counterparts. Clearing individual levels of these tests can get you different points; for example, there are 5 points for level 1 and 10 points for level 2, and 20 points for level 3 of the Danish/Swedish/Norwegian versions of these tests.

Another test called the “Studieprøven (Study Test in Danish as a Second Language) “or equivalent versions in Swedish/Norwegian is also there which can get the green card applicant, a point score of 40. The applicant can also show his proficiency in German/English alongside that of Danish/Swedish/Norwegian. For proving proficiency in these languages, a candidate needs to undertake the German/English tests which are either equivalent to the Danish language test, level 3 or the Studieprøven and get awarded point scores of 20 and 40 respectively.

A candidate needs to pass a language test for proving his coherence in both, English/German and Danish/ Norwegian/Swedish. These tests are mandatory even if the green card applicant has fluency in these languages and his mother tongue is one of them.

At the time of application, the test results should not be more than 2 years old. The documentation for the passing of such tests should be submitted alongside the green card application.

Reputed university education

The candidates can also get extra points for their education, if it’s obtained from some reputed university which features in the top 400 universities as per the current THES-QS World Ranking.

10 points are given to someone whose education is from the top 400 universities in this ranking, 15 if the university features in the top 200 and 20 if it’s in top 100. As per the latest rankings, MIT is at the topmost position.

So, a candidate can receive 130 points in totality if his education is from a reputed university (among the top 400) and he is a PhD and he has cleared the Studieprøven or its Swedish/Norwegian versions and English/German versions.

Positive list

Any applicant can benefit from 30 bonus points if his profession is on the positive list. This is the list of those job sectors in Denmark that are right now experiencing huge windfall demand and hence a lack of experienced professionals.

The candidate’s education should also match with the education criteria specified for the designated job on this positive list. The categories on this positive list are Engineering; Doctor, dentist and veterinarian; Health; healthcare and personal care; IT and telecommunication, Teaching in high schools, seminaries, folk high schools etc; Teaching in elementary schools; Educational, social and church work and Other academic Work which includes job roles of Pharmacist, Pharmacologist and Auditor etc.

Adaptability points

These points are given on the basis of adaptability of a candidate to Danish work conditions i.e. this country’s government has established some parameters on the basis of which it adjudges a candidate’s ability to comfortably fit in, in the labor market of this country.

The 1st criteria for getting such points is that the candidate should have completed a one year or three years higher study course, in either a European Union/European Economic Area nation or the country of Switzerland to get 5 and 10 points respectively.

The 2nd criteria is that the candidate should have resided and worked legally for at least a year or two years consecutively in a European Union/European Economic Area country or Switzerland to obtain 5/10 points.

After fulfilling either of the above 2 criteria, the candidate can even get 5 points bonus if he has cleared at least the Danish language test, level 2.

So, a candidate can actually score 15 points at most under this category. So, come to Visa House and we will complete your dream of getting settled in Denmark.
