    General Updates


    The Danish Immigration Service has extended its expected processing times for applications submitted until September 2022.

    The reason for the extended application processing times is due to the prioritization of the many applications submitted under the Special Act on residence permits for displaced persons from Ukraine

    Delays will affect many applications, including those for:

    • Extension of a visa (6 months, up from 14 days);
    • Residence on the grounds of family reunion (9 months, up from 7 months)
    • Permanent residence permit (13 months, up from 10 months);
    • Residence card (5-6 months, up from 3 months).
