Foreigners could be charged 3000 kroner for a mandatory Danish language test from next year
Foreigners seeking residency through family reunification may be required to cough up 3000 kroner for a new mandatory Danish language test, reports Kristeligt Dagblad newspaper. [...]
Marianne Jelved, the Social Liberal integration spokeswoman, was baffled by the cost of taking the test and said her party did not support such immigration procedures. [...]
But Danish People’s Party MP Jesper Langballe said if the test could cut down the number of immigrants coming to Denmark, then it would serve its purpose.
‘We wouldn’t be sorry if it meant the number of applicants fell,’ he said.
Spouses of Danish citizens who come to Denmark after living in another EU country will be exempt from taking the test.
