    If you plan to apply for a residence permit or an extension of a residence permit based on work or studies around 1 January 2016, please note that processing fees are regulated on 1 January 2016.

    If you wish to apply before the fees are regulated, you must not only pay the fee but also submit your application before 1 January 2016.

    In other words, it is the date on which you submit your application to the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration, to the Danish police, or at a Danish diplomatic mission, which determines the amount of the processing fee.

    If you pay the fee before 1 January 2016, but submit your application after 1 January 2016, you will have paid less than the required fee, and consequently your application may be rejected, that is, it will not be processed. It is not possible to create a Case Order ID with the regulated 2016 fee prior to 1 January 2016.

    The processing fees for applying for a residence permit are regulated every year on 1 January.
