The Danish government has ended same-day biometrics appointments for Quick Job Start applicants.

Key Points:

  • As of Aug. 25, Quick Job Start applicants applying through the Fast Track program can no longer book same-day biometrics appointments.
  • Applicants must book their biometrics appointment before noon local time at least one business day before their desired appointment date.
  • Applicants cannot book their biometrics appointment online; they must book their appointment through a link in the email receipt the employer receives after submitting the application or by contacting the employer’s contact person at the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI).

Additional Information: More information regarding the Quick Job Start application process is available here.

BAL Analysis: Same-day booking for biometrics appointments was removed because too many bookings were being made with short notice, causing processing delays and complications, Danish authorities stated. Foreign nationals who need to book a biometrics appointment for the Quick Job Start program should book an appointment at least one business day in advance.
