On Wednesday 11 October 2017 UIC will host a seminar with information on work and residence permits for foreigners currently residing in Denmark. The presentation will be delivered by the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration, and it will deal with topics particularly relevant to non-EU/EEA-citizens now living in Denmark. The seminar functions as an update about the current rules, with the following topics to be touched upon:

  • Sideline occupation for researchers - when should you have sideline occupation permit, and when can you get sideline occupation permit. And why should you have it?
  • Establishment card for PhD students after completing a Danish PhD
  • Job search period for both researchers and PhD students (what must you expect? What about new permission? etc.)
  • Extensions and procedural residence - when should extensions be applied for? And what does procedural stay mean in this regard?
  • Permanent residence permit - conditions and requirements
  • How the researcher and accompanying spouse can "swap" permission. This applies if the researcher becomes unemployed and the scientist's accompanying wife/husband has a job
  • Questions

The seminar is particularly relevant for non-EU/EEA-citizens, and all AU staff, their spouses and other internationals are invited.

If there are any questions, please contact Gitte Haahr-Andersen via email at or phone +45 30698483.

Please notice that registration is required no later than Monday 9 October 2017 at 12 noon. Register here.
