Residency for EU citizens

As a citizen of the EU/EEA or Switzerland, you may freely move around in the EU. If you reside somewhere for more than three months, it is important to be registered in the EU. When you are EU-registered in Denmark, you can be registered in the national register and thus also be covered by the Danish public health service.

As an EU citizen, you must have a reason to reside in another EU country. This will typically be for studying or working. The five reasons for residency you can have as an EU citizen are mentioned below.

  • Employee
  • Student
  • Self-employment
  • Person with sufficient means (self-supporting)
  • Member of the family of an EU citizen
