Hi All,

I am a guy in early thirties with a wife and kid. I am planning to immigrate to Denmark. It wasn’t what I planned to do with my life initially. I never wanted to leave Nepal and I had also managed to start my own business which went on well for a while. But I couldn’t continue it for long as there were so many obstacles to conduct business here in Nepal. You all know the current political and financial situation of our country. I love Nepal but it isn’t the best place where I want to raise my child.

I was thinking of Canada, but I found out that I lacked a few points to apply for immigration there. I seem to meet all the requirements to apply for Denmark and the counselor at an Immigration Consultancy here in Kathmandu advised me to apply there.

If you are a Nepali in Denmark, I would really appreciate if you could let me know if it’s a nice place to immigrate. What are the opportunities in general? Anything that you can share about life out there would help me a lot.

Hi Gokarna,
I don't have much knowledge about Denmark but I myself migrated to France few years back. From what I have read and heard, Denmark seems to be a great country to raise a family.
Since Denmark lies quite north from the equator, you will get less sun that you are used to in Nepal. This is one area you have to get used to. It was the same for me in France.
But if you are not much bothered by the rain or by the grey weather, you are fine.
For work and finances, you will definitely make as much as you would in USA but you will ahve all the benifits that you would not have in USA. You will get free health care, free child care, good unemployment benifits etc.
These countries have good amount of immigrant, most of whome are muslims. So if you do your best to assimilate to their culture, you will be much appreciated. This is also one of the ways to stand out from a regular closed-minded immigrant who profits from their generous  state-system.
So Denmark is a great country to be in with your family if you can handle the cold, wet and grey weather and a relatively smaller nepalese community. Besides, with a citizenship of a EU country, you can easily move to other EU countries for various reasons. And this is a great thing. Imagine being able to move to and work in any 20-25 countries without any problem.
Good Luck

If you wish to obtain a residence permit under the Greencard scheme and wish to bring your spouse/partner and child, you are required to document that you have sufficient funds amounting to DKK 5,367 per month required to provide for yourself, DKK 5,367 per month to provide for your spouse/partner and DKK1,342 per month to provide for your child.

In all, you must be able to prove that you have financial resources amounting to DKK 144,912 – (5,367 + 5,367 + 1,342) x 12 – the equivalent of one year of Start Help benefits for the same size family.

Please note: If your child/children apply for an independent residence permit but your spouse/partner (the child's/children's other parent) does not apply for a residence permit, the monthly Start Help amount is DKK 1,619 per child.

unless you're going there to file asylum, looks like the PR process is really expensive

2410 ppl applied and only 950 were processed, asylum seems tough too. 


In layman's terms, asylum means protection. 

In 2008 about 2,410 persons applied for asylum in Denmark. About 950 of these applications were processed in Denmark following the Dublin Regulation.

The Immigration Service ruled in 1,042 asylum application cases in 2008, and approximately 50% were granted asylum.

Convention refugees and others in need of protection

In order to be granted asylum in Denmark, an applicant must meet the conditions listed in the United Nations Refugee Convention, or the conditions for Protected Status as defined in Section 7 of the Danish Aliens Act.

According to the United Nations Refugee Convention, a refugee is a person who is outside his or her country of origin, due to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.

In addition, Denmark grants protection in cases where, as a state, it is obliged to do so in order to comply with the international conventions it has ratified. For example, residence permits are granted to asylum seekers who risk the death penalty, torture, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment, if they return to their country of origin.

Who are applying for asylum?

In 2008, the predominant groups of asylum seekers came from Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran and Russia.
