All exchange students need to get an EU residence permit. EU/EEA students can get this after arrival.
EU students must apply for a residence permit to stay in Denmark for more than three months. Please note, if your home country has a visa requirement you must obtain the residence permit to enter Denmark. If you are a citizen of a visa-free country, you can enter Denmark without the residence permit, if you have not received your residence permit prior to your arrival to Denmark. You will find the list of countries with visa requirement and visa-free countries on the web page of New to Denmark.
The IT University will assist you with information about the application process for the residence permit. Normally, the processing time is up to 2 months. You can have an overview of the process on the web page of New to Denmark. On the web page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark you will see where to have your biometric features recorded. Before you start up the process, please make sure that your passport is valid during your stay in Denmark.
