Permanent residence for EU citizens in Denmark: If you have lived legally for a continuous period of five years, you automatically acquire the right of permanent residence. This means that you can stay in the country as long as you want. 

  • You can lose your right to permanent residence if you live outside the country for more than two consecutive years.
  • Your permanent residence is not affected by temporary absences (less than six months) or longer absences due to compulsory military service.
  • You can get permanent residence before five years if: a) you retire and have worked in the country for the last year, or have lived here continuously for three years; b) you stop working because you are no longer able to work and have lived in the country continuously for two years; c) you stop working because you are no longer able to work due to an accident at work or occupational illness. In this case, you have the right to remain regardless of how long you have lived in the country prior to the accident or illness.
