Denmark Immigration from Australia

There are numerous reasons to migrate to Denmark. Denmark was recognized as the second most peaceful country in the world, after New Zealand, in the Global Peace Index survey. Denmark was also classified as the least corrupt country in the world.

Denmark has a GDP per capita income that is greater than most European countries and 15-20% more than the United States.

Other reasons to migrate include:
  • Work life balance
  • Excellent business climate
  • Efficient welfare state system
Migration options

It is possible to obtain a residency visa in Denmark for the purpose of looking for work or working in the country. Non-European citizens can also enter Denmark through full-time higher education, internships, religious worker permits, au pair permits, and the asylum system.

Another way to move to Denmark is to apply for the Startup Denmark program, which provides three foreign entrepreneurs with a Danish residence permit and the opportunity to start a business if they have a unique business idea. Before granting the residence permit, a panel of specialists will assess the business proposal.
