The Danish government increased fees for work, study, intern and accompanying family applications on May 17.

Key Points:

  • Individuals applying for work permits must now pay 4,670 DKK (about US$678), increased from 4,405 DKK.
  • Individuals applying for study permits must now pay 2,115 DKK, increased from 1,890 DKK.
  • Individuals applying for intern permits must now pay 4,320 DKK, increased from 4,175 DKK.
  • Individuals applying for accompanying family permits must now pay 2,635 DKK, increased from 1,615 DKK.

Additional Information: Those who paid filing fees before May 17 but did not submit their application must make an additional payment to account for the increase.

BAL Analysis: Denmark’s fees for processing applications for residence permits are normally adjusted on Jan. 1 each year. The May 17 adjustment is due to the fact that the national budget for 2023 took effect on that date.  Employers should take the new application fees into account and adjust their budgets if necessary.
