Attention

We are currently experiencing problems with the NemID employee signature in some of our online forms. We are working on solving the problem. Using private NemID instead will in some cases solve the problem.

There are a number of advantages when using the digital self-service solutions. Submitting a digital application to the Immigration Service will ensure that the individual applicant submits all the relevant and necessary information. The questions in the digital self-service solution will adapt to the user’s situation. At the same time, all information will be transferred directly to the Immigration Service’s case processing systems. This improves the efficiency of the application process and ensures the user a better service.

It is mandatory to use the digital self-service solutions that the Immigration Service provides on newtodenmark.dk when you submit one of following types of applications (click on the link in the right column to access the self-service solution directly).

Rejection of an application

If you do not submit the application using the digital self-service solution, the Immigration Service can reject the application. This means that the Immigration Service will not process the application and you have to apply once more. Before the Immigration Service rejects the application, the Immigration Service will contact you and give guidance in how to submit the application correctly.

Certain applicants are exempt from the requirement of digital self-service

There can be special circumstances which mean that some people cannot fill in a digital application. In these situations the Immigration Service will process the application even though it is not digitally submitted.

The special circumstances can be e.g.:

  • Applicant lacks digital qualifications
  • The applicant cannot use the digital self-service solution due to health issues

The Immigration Service will in the assessment of whether an applicant can be exempt from the requirement of digital self-service take into account whether the applicant has already been exempt from registration of Digital Post. Read more about Digital Post

It is not a requirement that Turkish Citizens, who are covered by the Association Agreement between the EU and Turkey, use the digital self-service solutions. Read more about which Turkish Citizens are covered by the Association Agreement. However, the Immigration Service recommends that the Turkish Citizens who are covered by the Association Agreement also use the digital self-service solutions.

Furthermore it is not a requirement that third-parties, e.g. lawyers and relatives, use the digital self-service solutions.

If you believe that you are exempt from mandatory digital self-service you have to use the printable application form, which the Immigration Service provides for the relevant application type, instead.  This does not apply to Turkish Citizens who are covered by the Association Agreement.

If you are exempt from the requirement of digital self-service when submitting an application to the Immigration Service, you have to use the relevant printable application form that the Immigration Service provides, instead.

If you use a printable application form when submitting an application that is covered by the requirement of mandatory digital self-service, and the Immigration Service asses that you cannot be exempt from mandatory digital self-service, the Immigration Service can reject the application.

The Immigration Service provides the following printable application forms for applicants and third-parties who are exempt from mandatory digital self-service:

In the instances where the Immigration Service provides a digital (on-line) self-service solution for one of the application types above, it is your choice whether you want to use the digital solution or the printable application form.

Rejection of application

If you do not use the printable application forms the Immigration Service can reject the application. This means that the Immigration Service will not process the application and you have to apply once more. Before the Immigration Service rejects the application, the Immigration Service will contact you and give guidance in how to submit the application correctly.

H3:] Certain applicants are exempt from the requirement of using application forms

However, there can be very special circumstances where some applicants cannot use a printable application form. The special circumstances can e.g. be that the applicant cannot fill in a printable application form due to health issues.

Third-parties, e.g. lawyers and relatives, are normally not exempt from the requirement of using printable application forms.

It is not a requirement that Turkish Citizens, who are covered by the Association Agreement between the EU and Turkey, use the printable application forms. Read more about which Turkish Citizens are covered by the Association Agreement.

If you believe that you are exempt from mandatory use of printable application forms, you have to contact the Immigration Service. The Immigration Service will instruct you in how to submit an application.

Turkish Citizens, who are covered by the Association Agreement between the EU and Turkey, are exempt from the requirement of mandatory digital self-service or the use of printable application forms when submitting an application to the Immigration Service.

The Turkish Citizens in question have a residence permit on the grounds of work or are Turkish Citizens who are otherwise economically active as employees, self-employed or service providers. Foreigners who apply for family reunification with a Turkish Citizen in Denmark, who is economically active as an employee, self-employed or service provider, are likewise exempt from the requirement of digital self-service.

It is a matter of concrete assessment whether a person can be considered a worker under EU-law. It is crucial whether the person has had genuine and effective employment. In the assessment of whether the person has had genuine and effective employment the emphasis will also be laid on whether the person performs services for and under the direction of another person in which he/she receives remuneration. Employment appearing to be a mere marginal supplement is excluded from the scope of application of the concept. If the employee only works a few hours a week it could be an indication of a mere marginal supplement. It is therefore normally a condition that the relevant employment amounts to at least 10-12 hours a week.

However, the Immigration Service recommends that Turkish Citizens covered by the Association Agreement use the mandatory self-service solutions and the mandatory printable application forms.
