Immigration Update February 2022

Latest news from Danish Immigration SIRI

Update by The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) – Adjustments in practice per 1 March 2022.

15 February 2022


As per 1 March 2022 SIRI will adjust its practice when processing applications for extensions in the area of work.

Until now SIRI has only assessed whether the foreign national has received a salary that corresponds to the employment contract based on which the residence and work permit was granted. 

From March SIRI will assess whether the foreign national’s salary corresponds to Danish standards when the foreign national applies for an extension of his or her residence and work permit under e.g., the following schemes:

  • The Positive List for people with a higher education
  • The Pay Limit scheme
  • The Fast-Track scheme’s Pay Limit track and Researcher track
  • Researchers
  • Accompanying family members applying for extension of a work permit based on work in the same company as the sponsor
  • Work permits for the Faroe Islands and Greenland granted for work with a specific employer

SIRI’s assessment of whether the salary corresponds to Danish standards will take place according to the same principles as in first time applications. If the pay is below the usual level, an extension of the residence and work permit will not be granted.
