||3 December 2012 - Changes in Immigration Processing Fee
If you plan to apply for a residence permit or an extension of a residence
permit based on work or studies around 1 January 2013, please note that
processing fees are regulated on 1 January 2013.
If you wish to apply before the fees are regulated, you must create a Case
Order ID and submit your application before 1 January 2013. It is not possible
to create a Case Order ID with the 2013 fee prior to 1 January 2013. This means
that if you wish to submit your application after 1 January 2013, it is
important that you create your Case Order ID on 1 January 2013 or later.
In other words, it is the date on which you submit your application to the
Danish Agency for Labour Retention and International Recruitment, to the Danish
police, or at a Danish diplomatic mission, which decides the amount of the fee.
If you have paid less than the required amount, your application will be
rejected, that is, it will not be processed.
The processing fees for applying for a residence permit are regulated every
year on 1 January.

residence permits in form of stickers in the passport. Applicants who receive
permission for a residence permit will be issued a D-Visa that allows the

applicant has to approach the Danish Immigration Service, which will then issue
the residence permit in form of a plastic card to the applicant. The new
procedure is in accordance with EU regulations. Please note that the D-Visa is

other Schengen airports, but it does not allow the travel into other Schengen
countries. Residence permits that were issued in form of stickers before May
20, 2011, keep their validity and applicants can still travel to Denmark. For
