A residence and work permit allows you to stay in Greenland for the period of time your permit is valid.
If you are a citizen from a country outside the EU/EEA, the residence permit does not give you the right to reside in the Schengen area.
If you have been legally living in Greenland for less than two years, you can stay outside the Greenland up to 6 months.
If you need to stay abroad for a longer period of time, you can apply for dispensation to prevent your permit from lapsing. Please note that dispensation is only given under special circumstances e.g. if a close family member is seriously ill.
You can only work in the position and in the place of internship that you have been granted a permit to work in.
If you are offered a new internship, you must apply for a new permit. This also applies if you are offered a new position in the same workplace.
If you, in connection to your job, need to stay abroad for a longer period of time, you can apply for dispensation to prevent your permit from lapsing.

Normally, with a residence permit as an intern you are not allowed to bring your family with you to Greenland.
