Denmark’s Post-Brexit Residence Permit Application Closes End Of 2023

Denmark’s Post-Brexit Residence Permit Application Closes End Of 2023

The authorities of Denmark have reminded British nationals of the deadline to apply for residence permits under the Withdrawal Agreement.

Earlier this year, the Danish government announced that British nationals who did not secure their post-Brexit residency status now have until the end of 2023 to apply or resubmit their late application.

According to the Danish Immigration Service, all those who meet the conditions for residence under the Withdrawal Agreement, including those who had legal residence in accordance with the EU rules on free movement before December 3, 2021, can apply for the residence permit.

However, it has been stressed that people who have the right of residence in Denmark under the Withdrawal Agreement should not apply again.

The extended deadline also applies to those who submitted their applications after the original deadline expired and received a rejection to have their application processed.

British nationals are required to undergo these rules following the exit of the UK from the EU.

Those who moved to Denmark from the UK after December 31, 2020, are not covered by the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement and are therefore subject to Denmark’s general immigration rules for third-country nationals. They are also unaffected by the extended deadline.

Fewer British Nationals Moved to Denmark

The Danish government stated earlier this year that the number of British citizens moving to Denmark in 2021 recorded a significant drop compared to the last fifteen years.

According to data by Denmark Statistics, a total of 854 British citizens moved to Denmark in 2021. This is a sharp decrease compared to 2020 and 2019 when a total of 1,406 and 1,584 British nationals moved to Denmark, respectively.

Such a decline in the number of British citizens deciding to move to Denmark is closely linked to the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.

This is mainly due to stricter restrictions and the fact that British nationals can no longer live and work in the bloc under the EU Freedom of Movement.
