Hi. I am moving to Denmark and want to know if I will qualify for free healthcare there? Or do I need to take out my own health insurance? Thank you.

Hi Phil

If you are an EU citizen then you qualify for free healthcare in Denmark. If you are not an EU citizen then it is advised that you take out health insurance until you become a permanent resident in Denmark.

Please see our page on Healthcare in Denmark for a full explanation.

I hope this helps,
