1. Application

ST1: Application for a residence and work permit for students

Please note that the educational institution in Denmark begins the application process by filling in one part of the form before forwarding it to the applicant.

Additional documentation for students
Students at folk high schools, at basic or youth education programmes as well as students, who do not pay tuition fees, have to document sufficient financial means, which is DKK 50,000 (approx. INR 3,75,000 depending on the exchange rate). The maintenance amount must be substantiated by opening an account with a Danish or European bank in the name of the applicant.

2. How to open a Danish bank account:

1. To open a Danish bank account you should send an email to the bank you wish to contact.

2. You will then receive an email containing the following documents:
- Account Opening Request
- A letter containing the guidelines for opening a bank account in Denmark
- A letter informing you of the general rules for agreements between you and the bank

3. As outlined in the guidelines from the bank, you must send a letter to the bank containing the following documents:
- Account Opening Request (filled in, duly signed and verified by a Financial institution, Embassy/Consulate or Notary Public/Solicitor)

- Copy of your passport (verified by a financial institution, Embassy/Consulate or Notary Public/Solicitor)
- A copy of the admission letter from the Danish educational institution at which you are planning to study (verified by a financial institution, Embassy/Consulate or Notary Public/Solicitor
The documents should be posted to the relevant bank in Denmark.

4. When the bank has received the above mentioned documents, they will open your account.
You are then able to transfer min. 50.000 DKK, but your account will be blocked until you are in Denmark and have received your Danish Tax Registration (CPR-number).
