All US passport holders on semester or academic year programs in Denmark must apply for a residence permit.
Students can either apply for their residence permit prior to departure from the U.S. or after arrival in Denmark. If students complete the residence permit application process prior to departure from the U.S. they must travel to Chicago (or their nearest convenient processing center) to submit their materials, and to have biometric readings taken. Students cannot start this process until they have been officially accepted by the University of Copenhagen and have their acceptance letter. Once accepted, the University of Copenhagen will send students information on how to complete the residence permit application process.
If you are not a US passport holder, contact a Danish Embassy or Consulate and ask about your specific requirements.
Direct all questions about the residence permit application process to a consulate.
