Hi Matthias,

I am Steve, originally from Yorkshire but I have lived in Denmark for 10 year. As long as you are an EU citizen and have a job to come to getting into Denmark is simple. I just visited the local commune (council) office and filled in a few forms and was given a CPR (National insurance) number. It was that simple.

If you know where you are going to live sent an e mail to the local commune office explaining your situation. Writing it in English will be ok as the Danes are very multi lingual.

I hope this helps.

Steve

Ps. I love it in Denmark, so much nicer than the Uk.

I think it is best to ask about residency in Denmark and not in another country. All it needs is a phone call or an e mail.
