If you are a citizen of Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden, you are free to enter, live, study and work in Denmark. You do not need a visa or residence permit.

As a Nordic citizen, you can enter Denmark without a passport. However, you must be able to identify yourself if required, e.g. if you are staying in a hotel, camping ground, or the like. Your driver's license or bank card is sufficient identification.

Bringing your family

If your family members are Nordic citizens, they do not need to apply for family reunification. They can enter and reside in Denmark in accordance with the regulations for Nordic citizens.

If your family members are not Nordic citizens, they should either apply for an EU residence document or a residence card under the EU rules.
