Residence permits for EU citizens, EEA citizens and Nordic nationals
According to the “EU rules on free movement”, citizens of the EU/EEA and Switzerland are free to enter Denmark to work or to look for a job. If you are planning to be here for six months or less, you do not need a residence permit. However, if you plan to work in Denmark for three months or more, it is advisable to register immediately and apply for a CPR number (Danish social security number).
EU citizens are nationals of Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus (only from the Greek Cypriot area), Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the Czech Republic, Sweden, as well as Germany, Hungary and Austria.
EEA citizens are nationals of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. If you come from Norway, however, the regulations for Nordic citizens apply.
The same rules apply to Swiss nationals as to EU/EEA citizens.
