Residence and Work Permit - Fee

A fee is paid upon submission of application and is non-refundable. Fees are liable to change without prior notice. When submitting an application for residence- and work permit you usually have to pay a fee to both the Danish Immigration Service and to the Embassy.

(1) To the Danish Immigration Service

On the 1st of January 2011 the Danish Immigration Service introduced fees for most applications for residence and work permits. These fees must be paid online directly to the Danish Immigration Service prior to lodging the application with a Danish mission. For details on the individual application fees and how to pay please see here. 

Explanation: This fee covers the Danish Immigration Service’s case processing of the application.

(2) To the Danish Embassy in Bangkok

From 1 July 2019, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark including all Danish diplomatic missions are introducing online payment of the embassy fee for residence or work permit.

The embassy fee should be paid online here.
 
Explanation: The fee covers the Embassy's involvement in the expedition and processing of the application and issuance of the visa-sticker if applicable.

Please note: The fees are non-refundable irrespective of the decision reached by the Danish Immigration Service. The fees will not be refunded if the application is unsuccessful.

(3) To the Visa Application Centre (VFS)

When you hand in your passport, relevant documentation and supply biometrics at the Visa Application Centre (VFS), it is important that you bring the receipt for the payment to the embassy. The embassy fee and the service fee to the Danish Visa Application Centre (VFS) must be paid in addition to the fee to The Danish Immigration Service.

Residence permits for Iceland

Applications for residence permits for Iceland should be sent directly to the Icelandic Immigration Authorities:

Directorate of Immigration
Utlendingastofnun
Skogarhlid 6
105 Reykjavik
Iceland
Tel. 00354 510 5400

Once the application has been approved, an authorization for a long-term visa (D-visa) will be sent to the Visa Section at the Royal Danish Embassy, who will then issue the visa.

Please note: According to The Executive Order on Payment for Services, the Embassy will charge a fee for the issuing of the D-visa visa stickers.

Re-entry permit

Thai nationals who loose their Danish residence card during their stay in Thailand or have a new passport issued in connection with name changes/expiry of their passport are kindly requested to come in person to the embassy as soon as possible, so that the embassy can contact the Danish Immigration Service and request authorisation to issue a re-entry permit to Denmark. Please note that this process can take from a few days to several weeks and it is therefore important that the embassy is informed as soon as possible.

Payment must be made before coming to the embassy.

Children under the age of 18

Children under 18, who follow their mother’s residence permit, should ensure that they have a re-entry permit stamped into their passport BEFORE they exit Denmark or else they will not be able to re-enter the country again. The Danish Immigration Service issues these re-entry permits (alternatively they can refer to the nearest issuing office).

If the child does not get a stamp in his/her passport before leaving Denmark, the child must contact the embassy as soon as possible after arriving in Thailand. The Embassy will then contact the Danish Immigration Service to confirm whether or not a re-entry permit can be issued. Please note that this process can take from a few days to several weeks.
