The United Kingdom left the EU on January 31st 2020.  The Withdrawal Agreement, which was negotiated by the EU27 and the United Kingdom, entered into force on February 1st 2020. The purpose of the Withdrawal Agreement is to ensure that British citizens who are legally residing in the EU in accordance with the EU rules on free movement before the end of the transition period (31st of December 2020) can continue to reside in the EU also after this date on terms, which overall correspond to the current terms.

As a British citizen residing in Denmark in accordance with the EU-rules on free movement, you do not need to do anything now. Residence documents that have been issued in accordance with the EU rules on Free Movement will continue to be valid in a transitional period.

You have an obligation to register in accordance with the EU Residence Order in connection with you taking up residence in Denmark if you plan to stay more than three months (issuance of registration certificates and residence cards).

Applications for registration certificates and residence cards must be submitted to the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI).

According to the Withdrawal Agreement Member States can establish a procedure for issuing new types of residence documents confirming a residence right. Further information on issuing of new residence documents will be published on the websites of the Ministry of Immigration and Integration and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs when finally decided on.

This information will be updated regularly.
