Family Reunification Permit
Foreign nationals who have spouse, cohabiting companion or registered partner already resident in Denmark
Requirements relating to you and your spouse/partner
â¢You must both be over the age of 24.
â¢You must live together at the same address in Denmark when your residence permit is granted.
If you and your partner are not legally married or registered partners, your relationship must be of a permanent and lasting nature. The Immigration Service will assess, based on all relevant information, if this is the case. Normally, you must be able to document that you have lived with your partner for at least 18 months at a shared address.
Furthermore, your partner in Denmark must assume full responsibility for supporting you.
Foreign nationals under 15 years of age who have a parent or parents living in Denmark
If you are granted a residence permit, it will be a temporary one. You can apply for an extension of your residence permit, and after a certain period of time, you can apply for a permanent residence permit. You must still meet the conditions for your original residence permit.
Normally, a residence permit as a family reunified person gives you the right to work in Denmark.
