About

If you have been granted a residence permit on the grounds of family reunification in order to live in Greenland with a spouse/partner, you can normally apply for a permanent residence permit once you have held a temporary residence permit on the same grounds for three years, and you meet the following requirements.

If the application was initially issued to a child under the age of 18, the child cannot apply for a permanent residence permit until turning 18. If the child's parent is also a foreign national, he/she must hold a permanent residence permit before a child can qualify for a permanent residence permit, or the child must have been a legal resident of Greenland for at least three years.

In certain cases, you can apply for a permanent residence permit, even though you have resided in Greenland for less than three years.
