The reunification happens through an application from the foreign family member. Whether the application is successful or not comes down to the domestic statuses (wealth, integration, debt, crime records, time on Danish soil etc.) of the family member or members resided in Denmark. The residence permit is limited to 2 years at first, after which the applicant can apply for more years. After 5 years of temporary residence permit in Denmark, the applicant can apply for permanent residence permit if the necessary conditions are fulfilled.
