Denmark green card scheme

ACCA
KFC
#1

Hello
I wish to apply for Denmark’s Green card scheme which allows one to live and work there for three years but the I read some articles criticizing the scheme as it does not conduct labor market test before giving away visa and gives visa to almost everyone. As a result many fresh graduates do not find jobs in their field and end up working as waiters in restaurants. This does sound scary but I am a international student who finished her masters with a commendation degree in UK and is now pursuing ACCA just to earn another year’s visa and figure out something in the mean time. For applying to any other country’s visa I would need to have 6months visa of the country where I am applying from and right now I have that. I keep insisting on Denmark because if I am successful and I find a job there, then I can gain PR in four years and come back to UK. Also countries like USA, Canada, UK will not give a work visa until you have a job in hand and a sponsor ready to sponsor your visa. As a fresh graduate its very hard to find a sponsor. In UK I do get interview calls but they say that they do not have the license to sponsor. This gives me hope that if I get the work visa it may be possible to bag a job. Right now I am pursuing ACCA and I work part time in KFC. I earn about £400 out of which I pay off £200 towards my students loan repayment. You can understand how hard it is live a life on £200 a month in England. My parents are worried that if I move to Denmark I might keep working in KFC for the rest of my life. Honestly, I do not like to work there either and I am desperate to start my career with a job in my field. However, given my situation I think moving to Denmark will be helpful financially as I will not be a student anymore and I will be allowed to work full time. ACCA can be completed ten years from now and so I can remain a part time student and give one paper a year and work full time and pay off my student loan. Is there a flaw in my plan? If so, please tell me what I should do instead. I understand that Denmark will not be a bed of roses but I’m intending to learn their language and I have the killer instinct to make it work. Whatever it is, I don’t think that my life will be worse than what it is now. It is very hard to keep paying student loan when one is allowed to work only 20hrs a week at basic pay. So I think that I don’t have much to lose and it is definitely worth a shot. Please advise.
Regards
Shreya

I am not sure about ACCA but Denmark visa has been criticized a lot online with Indians and Pakistanis in spite of having so much work experience and qualifications could not get a job…Its unfortunate but even I am trying to figure out what should I do to stay away from going back to India…How do you survive in £200 pounds a month? Me too really stuck !!!

Sorry but how will you move to Denmark and not be a student??? Am I missing something? I have checked their visa as well but didn’t find any information that you have mentioned ???

Hi nikki
The Denmark green card scheme gives u three years of work permit . If u get a job u can extend it for another year. After four years I think you get a pr, not sure though. If u have a pr then nothing like it, u can come back to uk. However, this green card scheme is highly critisized. I m not sure if I want to go there anymore

Hi Sreyashi, why do you say that it is criticized? Why wouldn’t anyone with the right qualifications/experience get a job? I have done my Masters in the UK. I am now back in India working for a Global Company. I have been thinking of applying for the Danish Green Card. Apparently it takes 7 months to get the 3 year visa which can be renewed at the end of the 3rd year for another 3 years and then 2 more years, after which you can get PR.

I am very keen on this prospect. Can you tell me what exactly am I missing here?

Dear Sreyashi,
I don’t know much abt ur degree. But I’ve friends here (DK) came from UK with good degrees… so far I know they end up doing job in shops & restaurants…

Luck only matters here…

Thanks for the info. Even I m told the same by people who have friends in Denmark. I m also considering doing s short course in Denmark and then applying for green card, then I get a bit more time to be aquatinted with the country and the language . Do you think that people who study in Denmark get a competitive age there?

Hello Sreyashi, I can relate to your problem. I recently graduated with a degree in Accounting and finance from Teesside university and am stuck, I have searched throughout internet for a place for me to work on a full time basis and do ACCA part time and the place I found was Canada, the best way into Canada is obviously if you find a sponsor however this is nearly impossible, the next method is the hard way which is to immigrate, this can be done with a 1 year experience in your field of study, so says an immigration consultant here in India, so I have put my dreams on a pause and am trying to find a job here in India. You don’t have to work your ass off in a KFC or learn another language, try this method, I am not sure if this plan of mine will work but it is for sure an easier way.
