While The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) remain closed during the shut-down of public offices, SIRI has begun screening non-EU applications for residence and work permit under the fast track scheme and extensions before biometrics recording takes place. This is an effort to prepare as many applications as possible for immediate decision as soon as biometrics recording can take place again.

Also, SIRI is inviting a select number of third country nationals, who are in Denmark already but await their decision before work can begin, to come to the citizen centre for biometrics recording. This approach will ensure that foreign workers already in Denmark can start working according to their employment contract.

In general, SIRI has extended the standard 14 days' deadline for biometrics recording to 2 months.
