Updated Pay Limit Scheme Threshold Changes to Fast-Track Scheme


You have been offered employment in a certified company. Your employer can apply for a Danish residence and work permit on your behalf via the Fast-track scheme.

If you are applying for a residence and work permit after the Fast-track scheme, it is your employer who must handle the application process using a power of attorney from you.

The Fast-track scheme makes it faster and more flexible for certified companies to recruit foreign employees to work in Denmark.

In addition, the scheme allows you to work both in Denmark and abroad.

Your employment must meet the conditions for one of the Fast-track scheme’s following five tracks:

  1. The pay limit track
  2. The supplementary pay limit track
  3. The short-term track
  4. The researcher track
  5. The educational track

However, it is important that you are aware of the scheme's conditions and the options you have with the different tracks within the scheme. Find out more.
