Permanent residence permit on the basis of a strong connection with Denmark
The residency requirement of 2 years for getting the Danish PR applies to those:
- So, a person who was not born in Denmark but both of whose parents are natural citizens of Denmark owing to their birth here can have this visa.
- If a single parent of such an applicant is a citizen of Denmark on the basis of his/her birth.
The residency requirement of 1 year for getting the Danish green card applies to those:
- So, a person who has lost his Danish citizenship and wants to get the PR now. The Danish citizenship gets lost for such a person because he was not born in Denmark and never had Danish citizenship because of his own birth. In fact, his citizenship was only given to him because his parents were born in Denmark and were citizens of this country. Such parents lost their citizenship of this country because they gained citizenship of another country because Denmark does not allow dual citizenship. As a result, the non-Denmark born child also loses his citizenship, if he does not live in Denmark at all (for 12 months minimum) before turning 22. So, the one-year requirement to regain the Danish PR is applicable once you decide to be in this country before turning 22.
- The person has an association with the Danish population living in Argentina
- The person hails from the Danish population living in South Schleswig.
Permanent residence permit under the EU rules
EU nationals are eligible to get the PR once they have stayed in this country for 5 years in total. The stay of 5 years is on the basis of an EU residence document which is available to those who have the nationality of European Union. They just need a European residence document for a residency in Denmark.
