There are different application forms for different types of applicants. Each application form contains a detailed description of how to complete the form, and which documents you must attach.

Please see the links to the application forms on the homepage of the Danish Immigration Service here.

Questions regarding visa and stay in Denmark are referred to the Danish Immigration Service or the Norwegian Consulate General in New York via the VFS Global Office in Rio de Janeiro, who, due to a joint Nordic agreement, represents Denmark in Brazil on these matters.

The application must be filled in and personally handed to the VFS Global Office in Rio de Janeiro. See more information here.

The applicant must be a resident in Brazil to apply for any kind of visa.

If you are a Nordic citizen, you are free to reside, study and work in Denmark. If you are an EU/EEA citizen or Swiss citizen and wish to reside in Denmark under the EU rules on freedom of movement, you may be subject to special regulations. Read more about EU/EEA and Nordic citizens here.

All applicants must contact the VFS Global Office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in order to schedule a visit to submit the application.

Au Pair

The term 'au pair' means 'on equal terms'. The idea of an au pair stay is for a young person to stay with a host family with children under the age of 18 'on equal terms' with the other members of the family. The purpose is for the au pair to improve language and/or professional skills as well as broaden his/her cultural horizon by becoming more acquainted with Denmark. In return, the au pair participates in the host family's domestic chores (e.g. cleaning, washing clothes, cooking, babysitting) for a minimum of three and a maximum of five hours a day, and no more than six days a week.

To ensure that you have a chance to improve your language and/or professional skills and broaden your cultural horizon as described above, it is a condition for getting a residence permit as an au pair that you already have the necessary linguistic and cultural foundation to receive the full benefit of your stay in Denmark.

This means that there are certain conditions which must be met, either by you, your host family, or both of you, please see detailed information here.
