The Danish government agency responsible for international recruitment and integration has published a list of the professions the country needs to attract to address job shortages – and it is a long one, reports SchengenVisaInfo.com

It includes 40 professions that require applicants to have a higher education (normally at least a master’s), along with a further 36 skilled worker job descriptions. 

According to SIRI (Styrelsen for International Rekruttering og Integration), applicants have until June 30 to register their interest.

Qualification requirements
“The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) has, on the basis of a list based on the Labour Market Balance received from the Danish Agency for Labour Market and Recruitment (STAR), developed new guiding positive lists for people with a higher education and for skilled work that will take effect on 1 January 2023,” noted SIRI.

“In order to qualify to move to Denmark under this list, the person must have an educational background that qualifies him/her. The same also must have a job offer in that profession, before applying for a Danish work visa.”

For skilled workers, SIRI further clarified: “It is open to those who have been offered a job included in this list that have the required expertise for working in that profession.”
