Online payment for residence permit and work permit

From 1 July 2019, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark including all Danish diplomatic missions are introducing online payment of the embassy fee for residence or work permit. The embassy fee should be paid online using this link.

The receipt for the payment should be submitted at the Danish Visa Application Centre (VFS) when you hand in all relevant documentation and supply biometrics.

VFS´s address in Addis; 1st Floor, Haimi Apartment Hotel, Bole 

Please note that in residence/work permit cases there are three fees to be paid.

1) the fee to either the Danish Immigration Service or the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI),

2) the fee to the Danish Embassy (Using this link)

3) the fee to the Danish Visa Application Service (VFS).


Are you applying for residence permit from Eritrea or Sudan?

If you apply for family reunification to Denmark, you will have to come to a Danish Embassy (e.g. in Ethiopia or Kenya) in person for obtaining biometrics. If the Danish Immigration Service requests a DNA test, you will also need to come to a Danish Embassy.

Please make an appointment at the embassy before you show up.
