The Danish government has announced delays for visa and work permit applications through September.

Key Points:

  • Foreign nationals should expect extended processing delays for most immigration applications, including but not limited to:
    • Short-term visas.
    • Permanent resident permits.
    • Extensions of residence permits.
    • Family reunification permits.
  • Applicants can check the new extended processing times for certain application types on this website.

Additional Information: Processing times do not include the time it takes to arrive at the Immigration Service. More information regarding the immigration processing delays is available here.

BAL Analysis: Danish authorities continue to prioritize residence permit applications for displaced persons from Ukraine, causing the processing delays for other applicants. Employees and employers should expect longer than normal processing times for most immigration applications.
