With effect from July 1, 2020, the Danish immigration authorities expanded the “positive list” of the shortage occupations by a “positive list for skilled workers”, and the previous positive list was renamed “positive list for highly educated”.
The positive list is Denmark’s list of professions where there is currently a shortage of qualified professionals. Foreigners who have been offered a job that is on the list and whose educational background qualifies them for the job can apply for a work and residence permit under the program.
The previous positive list has been renamed “Positive List for Highly Educated” and currently contains 44 job titles (the same applies since January 2020).
In order to use the new “positive list for qualified work”, the employer has to fulfill certain social educational obligations in relation to the training of trainees, as specified in the system for the employer’s contribution to education (Arbejdsgivernes Uddannelsesbidrag or AUB). In short, the employer is obliged to train a certain number of trainees and must have achieved this goal.
Affected employers are asked to contact a Newland Chase immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
