All application forms contain an application guide with a step-by-step description of the application process and a list of required documents, along with a checklist.

Please note: Some of the forms are first to be filled in by the sponsor in Denmark, e.g. an employer or educational institution. This is clearly indicated in the application guide. When the sponsor in Denmark has completed his/her part of the form and attached the necessary documentation, he/she must forward it to the applicant who will then complete the rest of the form, attach the necessary documentation, and submit the entire application at VFS.

The supporting documents, such as educational degrees/diplomas, marriage/birth certificate etc., must be legalised with an Apostille Stamp from the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India. Since India is also a member country of the Apostille Convention, there is no need for additional legalisation of the documents by the Danish representation in New Delhi. Applicants who do not legalize their original documents might later face difficulties while trying to register with the municipality in Denmark.

Residence permit with the sole purpose of immigration will not be granted.
