For EU nationals, a simple ID card is now sufficient. Nationals of the European community benefit from free movement. For stays of more than three months, it is necessary to apply for a residence permit from the office of the town hall of his place of residence. This is granted subject to sufficient resources for the length of stay in Denmark, the amount of which varies depending on the particular case. The employee holding a CDI can obtain a residence permit valid for five years.

Vaccines and safety in Denmark
Vaccines and local diseases
No compulsory vaccine is required for travellers passing through Denmark. The recommendations are exactly the same as in France.
The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) certifies your rights to health insurance in Europe. During a temporary stay in a Member State of the European Union, it allows you to benefit from the medically necessary care.
Security in Denmark
There are no major risks to be reported in Denmark, but since 2015 the terrorist risk is considered significant. In large cities, especially during tourist peaks, stay alert to pickpockets. In addition, before your departure, check the France Diplomatie website for official recommendations.
Health insurance and repatriation in Denmark
Why take international health insurance when travelling or living in Denmark? Simply because health spending quickly reaches very high amounts abroad. In addition, the repatriation guarantee is an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident it is sometimes necessary to carry out a medicalized repatriation to the nearest medical centre or to the country of residence. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and depending on the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to Charter a helicopter or a medicalized aircraft.
