It is a great site, extremely useful for prospective immigrants. I intend to immigrate to Denmark. On the New to Denmark website, they say that one needs to have expenses for one year. My question is what happens, if one does not get a job in a year as the Danish labour market is said to be very challenging and has been unable to accommodate high skilled people. If he cannot secure a job in a year, would he and his family have two options...either to starve or go back ... or the government would be of any assistance? I have a doctoral degree in Applied linguistics from the UK plus three year teaching experience in the higher education sector in the same country. Do you think I might be able to secure a job slightly easily?
Response: You would not be getting assistance from the government and would have to prove that you have sufficient funds to support your family for another year. The figures are listed on the Green Card Scheme page.
You would also have to reapply for an extended visa after your one year is up. The restrictions and rules seem to be changing a lot over the past year and do not think that the requirements are going to be eased, so prepare for a hard go of it if you do not secure a job.
I have often suggested that people wanting to move here on the Green Card Scheme, leave their families at home until they have secured a good job, home and established themselves in Denmark. If it does not work out than it easier on the whole family.
Best of luck,

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.
