Enjoy the reading! ;)

I welcome the comprehensive overview of relevants homepages as an excellent initiative as it will make information about Denmark more accessible for those who consider a future in this country.

It is a very ambitious project.

However, I thinks the links will do as the articles may not be updated and therefore do more harm than good. For good reasons, the articles have to be brief, actually so brief  that they may give a false impression of the conditions.

E.g. I stumbled upon the wording in the paragraph Generalities:
In fact, in case of redundancy, employees are entitled to considerable unemployment allowances. What! You have to pay an insurance to be entitled  to such an allowance, and it is also combined with a waiting period and you are only entitled to receive for a limited periode. … penge.aspx (only in Danish)

Another paragraph, I stumbled upon was about work.
Finding a job in Denmark is not a difficult task. You may start by checking out ads in local newspapers as well as on signposts in hypermarkets and shops if you are already on the spot. Why not send spontaneous job applications to companies operating across the country as well? These are quite appreciated.
I absolute not share this view, and I think it is an example of how you can make more harm than good.

Neither, I find it appropriate with old postings in connection to the article as things may have changed a lot since the posting was written, e.g. postings about the Green Card scheme.

I stopped my reading here ...........................

Hi Nellie,

Thanks for your reply and comments.

First of all, we would like to remind you and members of the Denmark Forum that the objective of this guide is to provide information and tips to expats who are already on the spot as well as foreign nationals who are planning to move there.

We are trying our best to be as accurate as possible so as to better help them in the different steps relating to their expatriation project.

If you have found any loopholes, please feel free to contact us so that we can discuss and make necessary corrections. We would be really grateful for your help.
