If you have been granted a residence permit to work or follow a higher educational programme in Denmark, your spouse, registered partner or cohabiting partner, as well as children under the age of 18 who are living at home with you are also eligible for residence permits.
However, you must document that you have at your disposal the equivalent of DKK 25,000 per family member. Your family members must be able to support themselves, and you must live together in Denmark at the same address.
Your spouse/partner is allowed to work full-time for the entire period that his/her residence permit is valid.
If you are in doubt about the rules, or if you want further information, please contact the Danish Immigration Service. The Danish Immigration Service and the Danish Agency for Labour Retention and International Recruitment have gathered information about obtaining residence and work permits at an official web portal about immigration rules, Newtodenmark.dk.
