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.

-Ryan

I mentioned that in the response that things have changed and you need to contact the authorities to find out what your situation warrants. Since the rules are very unclear I do not state that is an absolute. If you know of any specific rules that apply to everyone please let us know.

Moving back to Denmark

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.

It's true that you don't need the passport to cross the borders but, you do need a passport to identify your self to a police officer if they ask you.
