“Mudar-se para a Dinamarca: informação básica de como se registar, procurar casa e trabalho”
(texto em português e inglês)
Moving to Dk
Citizens from an EU/EEA country and Switzerland are entitled to live and work in Denmark. You need to apply for a registration certificate within 3 months after your arrival to Denmark (6 months if you are a jobseeker).
Then, you must get a Civil Registration number (CPR-number), a health insurance card and a tax card.
All the authorities you typically need to contact are represented at International Citizen Service http://icitizen.dk/#CHECKLIST. So in most cases, you’ll only need to visit an ICS office in Copenhagen, Aarhus Odense or Aalborg to take care of paperwork and find answers to your questions. Otherwise, you have to contact the individual authorities as described in the following.
A registration certificate is your documentation that you are entitled to live and work in Denmark. You must apply for a registration certificate within 3 months from your arrival to Denmark, if you are planning to stay in Denmark for more than 3 months and you either:
• have found a job in Denmark, or
• start studying in Denmark, or
• have sufficient resources to support yourself financially:
– DKK 88.356 (2019 level) if you are in Denmark without any family;
– DKK 176.712 (2019 level) if your spouse is accompanying you to Denmark;
– DKK 262.476 (2019 level) if your spouse and any children are accompanying you;
– DKK 174.120 (2019 level) if any of your children, but not your spouse, are accompanying you.
Documentation of your ability to support yourself (and any accompanying family members) can, for example, either be a bank statement or proof of your salary (as stated in your employment contract) if you are employed or have been offered employment.
• are a self-employed person, or
• are a family member to one of the above mentioned groups.
You can start working/studying in Denmark during the application period.
It is recommended that you apply for the EU residence certificate as soon as you come to Denmark.
If you are a jobseeker, you are entitled to stay in Denmark for up to six months without applying for a registration certificate. After the 6 months period, you can apply for a registration certificate based on possessing sufficient funds and stay in Denmark as a job seeker, as long as you can prove that you are still looking for work and have a genuine chance
of being hired.
After having received your registration certificate, you register your address in the Civil Registration System (CPR) to receive a Civil Registration number (CPR-number). Contact International Citizen Service or the citizen service centre (Borgerservice) at your local municipality.
Remember to bring:
• Registration certificate
• Original passport or national ID card and its copy
• Proof of your address in Denmark (e.g. rental contract, letter from landlord) and its copy
• Original marriage certificate and its copy if you are married (The marriage certificate and its copy are necessary, even if your partner is not accompanying you.)
• Divorce/death certificate if you are a widow(er).
• Original birth certificates and its copy for accompanying children under 18 years
The certificates should be in English, German or Scandinavian.
Health insurance card
When you are registered in the Civil Registration System (CPR), you must choose a doctor (general practitioner). You will receive a health insurance card with your Civil Registration number (CPR-number) and your doctor’s name and address. The health insurance card gives you the right to healthcare services on the same terms as other citizens in Denmark.
Your children are covered by the health insurance scheme together with you until they reach the age of 15 and are insured independently of their parents.
You can find out more about the national health Insurance at Lifeindenmark.dk – Healthcare.
If you need medical assistance before you receive a Danish health insurance card, you should use the blue European health card from your home country.
When you start working, your employer must have access to the information from your tax card.
It is necessary to apply for a tax card even if you are not required to have a Civil Registration number (CPR-number).

Unemployment benefit from another EU/EEA-country
Jobseekers with unemployment benefit from another EU/EEA country or Switzerland must register at one of Workindenmark-centres immediately after arrival in Denmark.
• Form PD U2 from your home country signed by the institution, which pays out your unemployment benefit.
• Proof of registration as unemployed. As proof of registration as unemployed in Denmark, you create upload your CV on this website. When you have completed your CV, you will be given a reference number. Please bring the reference/CV number, when you register at Workindenmark.

Procura de Emprego e Casa /Apartamento/ Quarto
Sites de Emprego e Empresas
Registem-se nos sites! Podem criar Job Agents com o tipo de trabalho que procuram e, assim, receberem um email sempre que há uma oferta de trabalho na área que procuram. Se na oferta de trabalho vier um contacto telefónico, liguem a pedir informações e mostrem o vosso interesse na oferta de trabalho. É uma mais valia, do que apenas enviar email e esperar por uma resposta que, às vezes, não vem. A maioria das ofertas de emprego vem em dinamarquês, pelo que aconselho a traduzirem para Dk a posição de trabalho pretendida. Dicionário Dinamarquês online: http://www.ordbogen.com ou http://ordnet.dk/ddo.

Alguns sites são pagos, mas vale a pena.É normal os senhorios pedirem 3 meses de renda + 3 meses de depósito.
