Lapse of permit

If your residence permit has lapsed or been terminated, you are no longer entitled to stay in Denmark and must leave.

If you do not leave before the set time limit for departure, your case will be transferred to the Danish Return Agency, and you will be called for an interview.

You can read more about your first interview with the Danish Return Agency here.

You can read more about the rules on the lapse of residence permits at the immigration authorities’ website:


If you have any questions, you are always welcome to contact the Danish Return Agency.
