Denmark Updates Calculation of Residence for Short-Term Track

SIRI has updated the guidelines for calculating residence under the short-term track, within the Fast Track Scheme.

  • Under the short-term track, applicants can be granted a residence and work permit that will last for up to 90 days.
  • The update provides further information on how to calculate the distribution of the 90 days across these several stays.

When calculating the multiple stays within 90 days, the method being used is referred to as a ‘rolling’ calculation. This means that the method only accounts for the number of days of residence within a 365-day period. When calculating the period, the count starts from the first day that your permit is to be valid, and is then counted 365 days back in time.

Applicants who have used a calculation of a short-term stay which is attached to their first entry into Denmark in connection to a pending application under the short-term track can contact SIRI no later than December 1, 2023.
