Moving to Denmark

by Ryan

Hey, I'm both a Danish and U.S. citizen. I married an American and live here in America currently too. My wife and I have been talking about possibly moving to Denmark. Do you know what that process might look like for her? Since she's married to a Dane, can she get Danish citizenship? Or, something the equivalent to a legal alien? Anyways, any info you might have would be greatly appreciated. Also, though I've lived in Denmark before and have gone through most of the stuff you talk about on this site, I still learned a lot from it. Thanks for posting all of the info you have.

Moving back to Denmark
by: Charlie

Hi Ryan,

If you have been married for a while, you probably won't run into much of a problem moving here. My wife got her CPR number, work and resident permit quickly, since she was married to a Dane (me). Of course that was many years ago and some restrictions have gotten tougher, while others have gotten a bit slack.

I would suggest you fill out a work and resident permit request and send it in to the immigration department and see what they say.

Since she is married to you and you are a Danish citizen she has the right to live here with you and also allowed to work. But she will need a visa, work and resident permit. Get this before you arrive. It can be time consuming.

Not sure what else to tell you, but if you any specific questions, get back to us.
