From 1 April 2023, the residence permit for job seeking after a completed higher educational programme or PhD programme is extended from 6 months to 3 years. The change apply to third-country nationals that complete a Danish professional bachelor, bachelor, master or PhD programme.
SIRI automatically grants a 3-year job seeking period along with your study permit if the validity of your passport allows it. You should, therefore, only apply for a job seeking permit if:
- the validity period of your residence permit as a student was shortened due to the expiry date in your passport,
- you were granted a 6-month job seeking period along with your residence permit, or
- you have completed your educational programme in Denmark after the prescribed period of study.
