Cost of Living

Cost of living

Denmark’s quality of life comes at a price and it’s high – more expensive, in fact, than most European countries. In fact, Copenhagen was recently rated by Mercer’s as one of the most costly cities in the world (according to their annual Cost of Living Survey). Expect to spend plenty of cash on transportation, food at the supermarkets and restaurants. Before accepting a position as an expat teacher, you’ll do well to ensure that your remuneration actually enables you to access the “good life” of Denmark.

Visa Restrictions

Visa Restrictions

If you are a European Union National you have the entitlement to work in any European Union member country without needing to obtain a work permit. The only exception to this is if you are planning to work in Croatia where some restrictions can apply. However you should still investigate the consequences of working and the effect this will have on your benefits (health insurance, maternity/paternity, pensions, occupational accidents and diseases, death grants, unemployment, early retirement, family benefits), and the implications of where and how much tax you pay. The European Union offers this Tax advise at its Your Europe website. Once you have been in an EU country for more than 3 months you will be required to register your residence and obtain a residency permit.

If you are not a European Union National then you will require a work permit. The requirements for this often differ depending on your Nationality. For the latest up to date information for entry please visit Danish Immigration website.
