Labour shortages in Europe are creating job opportunities for non-EU workers, and Denmark has joined the list of countries that have relaxed their immigration rules to attract international talent.
Denmark has lowered its minimum salary requirements, expanded its work permit fast-track scheme, and opened up more jobs to foreigners.
Additionally, foreign students studying in Denmark will have an extended job search period following the completion of their university degree. Denmark is experiencing a shortage of professionals in science, engineering, healthcare, teaching, IT, and finance, and is especially interested in degree-level applicants.
Companies wanting to employ foreigners can apply for fast-track certification, and Denmark is expanding its start-up scheme for third-country nationals.
The changes to the Danish Aliens Act will come into effect soon, and will allow job roles to remain on the positive lists for two years instead of six months.
