Family Reunification​

Do you have a family member in Denmark or do you yourself reside in Denmark, then you can apply for family reunification so that both of you will have residency in Denmark.​

How do you best prepare for the application?

The most important thing to sort out before applying for family reunification is the basis for residency. It is a requirement for family reunification that you can prove your relation to the family member/spouse /cohabitating partner whom you want to live with in Denmark. Perhaps you are thinking of settling down with your partner and get married in Denmark? If so, you will have to acquire permission from the Danish Family Court before you can get married.

Are you ready to apply for family reunification? Then check out the conditions:

You need to meet at the minimum 4 of 6 stated conditions to achieve family reunification in Denmark. The conditions fall into the following 3 categories:

  1. Education
  2. Work
  3. Language

The conditions for family reunification require for you and your partner to be able to live in Denmark without the help of the Danish state. Is it not possible for you to meet the conditions due to a disease or other exceptional circumstances? Then you might be able to apply for dispensation regarding one or more of the conditions.

How long does it take and how much is the official case fee?

The Danish Immigration Service has a case processing estimation of 7 months from the date when the application was submitted. The estimation is subject to alteration if the the Immigration Service requires supplementary documentation.

It is usually possible to apply for procedural residency while the case is being processed. But beware the travel restrictions when entering form outside the Schengen area, because it is not possible to apply for visa in Denmark if an application for family reunification has been submitted. 

The case fee is currently DKK 8.575.
