Non-EU countries

Follow this procedure if:

  • You are a non-EU/EEA national who has completed chiropractor training in a non-EU/EEA country
  • You are a non-EU/EEA national who has completed chiropractor training in an EU/EEA country (other than Denmark).
  • You are an EU/EEA national who has completed chiropractor training in a non-EU/EEA country. You can apply for registration under the special EU/EEA provisions if you have worked for a minimum of three years in another EU/EEA country.

A new political agreement, aimed at ensuring a better and more flexible authorization process, has resulted in changes to authorization fees and in changes to the authorization process for foreign healthcare professionals from outside the EU/EEA. More changes are expected.

Stay updated

It is important to stay updated on any changes to the registration procedure and be aware of the special deadlines you must meet.

Authorization Process

To obtain Danish authorization as a chiropractor, you need to follow the steps outlined below.

1. Application and Approval of Qualifications

To apply for Danish authorization, complete an application form and submit it electronically to the Danish Patient Safety Authority. For detailed information, please see the "Application and Qualification Approval" section.

Application and Approval of Qualifications

Upon approval of your education (deemed suitable for testing or equivalent to Danish education), you will be granted a three-year period to fulfill the requirements for obtaining permanent authorization in Denmark.

 

2. Language Test

You need to pass the language test "Prøve i dansk 3" (Danish 3 Exam). The language test is held twice a year in May/June and in November/December, and you can take the exam from various language centers in Denmark. You can take the language test before you send your application and documentation of formal qualifications. However, you must have passed the exam less than 12 months before you apply for registration, unless you can prove that you have stayed continuously in Denmark in the period after you passed the language test. For more information, see 

Language Test

3. Employment for Adaptation and Training Purposes

Once you have successfully passed the language test with the required scores, you are eligible to pursue employment for adaptation and training purposes, also known as "evalueringsansættelse." This particular employment opportunity aims to evaluate your clinical and communication skills. For further details, please refer to the "Employment for Adaptation and Training Purposes" page.
