Application and documentation


Application for your EU residence document can be made by following the steps below:

1. print out and complete the OD1 application form (which can be found on the tables and forms page)

2. prepare to be able to submit the following to the State Administration:

  • documentation for your basis for residence (find out more about documentation for your basis for residence below) 
  • your original passport and/or your national ID card
  • an accurate passport-size photo (two if you are not an EU/EEA national). See photo requirements here

3. attend in person at the State Administration to submit the above application form, documentation for your basis for residency, photo etc.

The application and associated documentation must be submitted in person at one of the State Administration offices in Aabenraa, Aarhus, Aalborg, København, Odense or Rønne (find addresses of local offices here).

Please note: Starting 1 April 2019 The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) will take over the processing of applications for EU residence documents from the State Administration. 
You can find further information here

We will process your case on the basis of the information you have provided in your application and in the associated documentation. In some cases, the State Administration will need to obtain further information, e.g. from other government authorities, including SKAT and the police and applicable authorities abroad.
