Denmark to Make Tighter its Immigration Policy

A preparation by Denmark to make tighter immigration rules using a points system reflecting appeal of immigrants’ looks set to turn out to be a passionate topic in demonstration for a parliamentary election due by November 2011.

With immigration a rising subject of argument in west European countries, Denmark's minority government has agreed with the right-wing Populist Party that supports it up to more tighten immigration policy and legislation.

Foreigners who are wedded to a Danish citizen and desire residency in Denmark will as well, in addition paying a higher fee, have to build up points based on education, work experience and language skills to do so, in accordance with the agreement.

Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen's minority Liberal-Conservative government has passed severe immigration laws in revisit for support from the Danish People's Party - parliament's third main party - since 2001. Denmark now has one of Europe's toughest attitudes on immigration.

They agreed on a deal that includes the opening of a point system for overseas spouses. Spouses below the age of 24 would require 120 points at the same time as those who are older will require 60 points. A degree from Danish or a "top" overseas university scores highest - 120 points, contrast with 40 points for vocational training abroad.

For Employment Points - between 40 and 80 - the candidate should have had a job abroad for 2.5 years out of the last three, or a "qualified" job in Denmark for the last two. skill in English, German, French, Spanish and Scandinavian languages also merits points.

An immigration ministry official said there was no date set for a election in parliament on the proposal but it was probable to be held after the turn of the year.

Integration minister of Denmark Birthe Ronn Hornbech told Danish media the latest system would assist amalgamation. Opposition parties greatly criticized the proposal, even though the Social Democrats and the Socialist People's Party presented an alternative point’s system proposal that also would mean a lessening of the rules.

Last month, Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen presented on a diagram to promote integration in some residential areas the government characterized as "ghettoes" due to a high quantity of immigrants and second-generation immigrants from non-European countries, high joblessness and a high crime rate.
