SIRI will be processing applications for EU residence in Denmark from 1 April

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. This happens as a consequence of the closure of the State Administration.

If you need to apply for a residence document in Denmark under the EU rules, you must submit your application to the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) starting 1 April 2019.

SIRI will be present nationwide

On 1 April SIRI will open branches in Odense, Aalborg, Aarhus and Aabenraa.

This matches the locations of the current State Administration branches which remain open until 1 April. Please note that on Bornholm, however, where the State Administration has until now had a branch, applications for EU residence documents must in the future be submitted to the police in Rønne.

For the time being SIRI will have two branches in Copenhagen: a branch on Ellebjergvej and a branch in Njalsgade.

Submitting an application to the police

You continue to be able to submit your application for a residence permit after the Danish Aliens Act and have your biometric data recorded at a number of police stations nationwide.

Types of application processed by SIRI

It is important to note that the above mentioned changes only apply to applications processed by SIRI.

SIRI processes applications from citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland for residence permits after the Danish Aliens Act and extensions of such permits based on e.g.:

  • Work
  • Study
  • Accompanying family members to employees and students
  • Au pair-stays
  • Internships
  • Working Holiday
  • Establishment card

Starting 1 April SIRI will also process cases concerning residence after the EU rules.

Applications processed by the Danish Immigration Service must still be submitted to the Danish Immigration Service. This includes applications for family reunification after the Danish Aliens Act.
