Remote work during Procedural Residence period?

Hi Everyone,

I need your advice...
My husband and I are planning to move to Denmark soon. (Yay!) He is Danish and I am a US citizen so we will be using the spouse reunification path. I understand that I am not allowed to work in Denmark while the application is being processed. But does anyone know if I can continue working remotely for my US-based company during the procedural residence/waiting period? I would essentially be working in the US but I would physically be in Denmark. Does this violate any Danish regulations or put my application in jeopardy?

The Danish Immigration website wasn't very clear on this.

Thanks!

Hi,

Having stayed a few months in Denmark for a project, you don't risk anything. What you are prohibited from doing is work on Danish territory. No one prohibits you from doing work abroad. Anyway, even if someone were to complain, you have the argument that you cannot stop your activities overnight. And then you have the right to make a living.

I can only recommend you to ask Siri as I always do regarding questions where a  wrong answer may have consequenses.

Actually, they encourage you to ask them if you have any questions to the rules.

I am afraid that this argument won't hold water.
