This is an excerpt from the Worktrotter's Guide to Denmark.
The Worktrotter's Guide to Denmark

The Worktrotter’s guide is primarily written for professionals that move to Denmark to live and work. These include both people that are moving permanently and those whose career bring them to the country only for a couple of years. On arrival, they will all be faced with similar practical problems.

There are, of course, many different aspects to immigration. Refugees and immigrants from non-Western countries will obviously face additional challenges from those I describe here. Grasping those is altogether more complicated and would demand a different perspective, one that is outside of the scope of this edition. Nevertheless, this guide could no doubt be helpful for them.

The book also has the potential to spark interest from the Danes as it will help them to get to know their country through the eyes of foreigners.

When you move you must be well prepared especially when you emigrate. This book examines life in Denmark from various perspectives and will help you make well-informed decisions.

For those who have decided to take the step, a number of practical questions arise. What needs to be done, and in what order? What deadlines need to be observed? Where do you turn in a particular situation? How is this or that handled in Denmark? You can, of course, find answers to most of these questions on the Internet – after a long search – but at the beginning, you often have no idea what information you need. And many of the websites are either only available in Danish or have limited information in English.

This book will provide you with all the details you will initially need and is written in compact form in easy-to-understand language. It will also provide more than 500 web links, addresses and information on where you can find more details.
You will get a comprehensive overview of the most important things to consider when starting out in Denmark. The guide is meant as a “starter-kit” – especially relevant for the first couple of years as a new resident gets settled.
The information is tried and tested, and contains many tips from other internationals making it an invaluable resource to you.
