Family Reunification Permit

This Permit is for:

Foreign nationals who have spouse, cohabiting companion or registered partner already resident in Denmark

Requirements relating to you and your spouse/partner
•You must both be over the age of 24.
•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.

Claims to hold a British Passport can be complex and the site offers a quick, simple search to give you the answers. While many people qualify for the UK Ancestry Visa based on holding a Commonwealth passport with a UK born grandmother or grandfather, we have found that if you have a grandparent born in the UK, or if your mother is British or your father is British, then there are several scenarios where you can claim British Nationality and the right to hold a British Passport. This stems from Britain’s collection of British Colonies, British Protectorates and British Protected States in the middle of last century and the Nationality rules concerning what are now the countries of the Commonwealth.
