How to pay application fees

If you are a non-EU/EEA citizen, you are required to pay a 100 EUR application fee before your application is processed. Some non-EU/EEA citizens are exempt from paying application fees.

Application submission, journal number and payment of application fees

The steps below should be followed:

  • Submit your online application.
  • Upon successful submission, you will receive an automatically generated acknowledgment mail and your 7 digit journal number will be mentioned just below the date.
  • Pay the application fees and mention your Journal number/ full name at the time of payment. Retain receipt of confirmation.
  • A caseworker from DTU will contact you and re-open your application, so that you can upload the receipt confirming payment of the application fees.

When DTU registers your application fee payment a confirmation e-mail will be sent to you. Depending on which country the money has been transferred from, it can take up to 10 days for the payment to be registered at DTU.

Please note that your application will not be processed until the application fee payment has been registered at DTU.

Exemptions for Non-EU/EEA citizens

If you have a “permanent residence permit” (MMF varigt ophold, MHP varigt ophold, or Permanent) or a “time limited residence permit issued with a possibility of permanent residence in Denmark” (midlertidigt ophold med mulighed for varigt ophold), you are exempted from paying the application fee. In order to qualify for this exemption, you must include a copy of your residence permit with the application. (* must have this exact wording).

Non-EU/EEA citizens who have completed a bachelor in Denmark are exempted from paying application fee.

Applicants with a “time limited residence permit”, a “Green Card” or any other Danish residence permit are required to pay the fee. 

Payment options

It is possible to pay the application fee through a bank transfer or the DTU webshop. Note that the DTU webshop works best with the Google Chrome browser. Please make sure to read the payment guide for the webshop.
