UK citizens living and working in Denmark after Brexit

UK citizens already living and working in Denmark before Brexit:
- will have the same rights after Brexit, as they have today;
- will need to apply for a new residence permit during 2021;
- will be contacted by letter with information about the online application process and when to apply.
UK cross-border employees (working in Denmark, but living in the UK) before Brexit:
- will have the right to continue to do so;
- will need to document that they were working as a cross-border employee before Brexit (valid work contract with a start date no later than 15 December 2020);
- will also need to apply for a new residence permit during 2021. It is the employees’ own responsibility to apply during 2021.
UK citizens arriving after 31 December 2020 without having obtained the EU residence certificate:
- will not be covered by the EU rules;
- will need to apply for a residence and work permit as a non-EU citizen;
- must not commence work until the permit has been approved.
