An overview of the Denmark Greencard Scheme

Government of Denmark has started Danish green card scheme which allows you to work and stay in Denmark along with your immediate family like your spouse. This is a points based system like many countries which are offering immigration, for instance, skilled worker Immigration of Canada, HSMP of UK and Skilled Immigration at Australia.
This Danish green card is issued on the basis of definite points allocated in a variety of criteria like Age, Education, Language skills, Adaptability and Work Experience. Denmark Green card is issued to you if you score at least 100 points in these different sections along with a valid health insurance policy. Another major criterion to get Danish Green card is that you must have enough funds to sustain you plus your family while you look for job in Denmark. With this Danish Green Card you get the residence permit for you and your immediate family to reside in Denmark for 3 years.
In this Danish Green card Scheme other than the areas stated above, you can also score a number of bonus points for different factors.
1. In the Education segment, the minimum criteria are that you should have a bachelor’s degree recognized and assessed by CIRIUS which is a Danish Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation body set up to evaluate academic credentials of prospective immigrants. In this segment you can obtain from 30 points for a Bachelor’s degree to 80 for a PhD with 10 bonus points for occupation related education like dietician, dentist, lawyer etc. You will also get bonus points if your institution falls in the top most universities of the world.
2. In the language skills section you can get a maximum of 30 points which includes knowledge of Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, English or German. You will have to clear Exam equivalent to at least Danish Language test level I which has four levels with points varying from 5 to 20 or by proving that you have completed at least one year's study in higher education which was taught in one of these languages. If you have proof of good proficiency in two required languages you can score a maximum of 30 points in this section.
3. You can score a maximum of 15 points in work experience segment providing that it lies in the positive list. The points are high if you are a researcher or have skills in the field which is in demand in Denmark.
4. You can also claim up to 15 points for Adaptability if you have studied or have work experience in Europe but you can’t claim both at the same time.
5. If you are under 34 you can claim 15 points of age and if you are above 34 but less than 40 than you can claim 10 points.

Thank you for detailed information about the green card scheme. It seems like it is considering different factors what is really good, but on the other side, I think many immigrants would welcome if the work permit lasts longer than 3 years.
There I am joining a new portal of job vacancies:
it is concentrating especially on vacancies in higher positions and often not even Danish is required.
