I have to be honest in that I do think you need to do a little more homework than merely to trust the word of an immigration agent's response. At the end of the day they are just out to get people and more importantly their fees. At best they are interested in the money and not the future and at work there are a lot of "scam" agencies out there who will promise you the earth and once they have your money then you will never hear from them again So, the cold hard facts are that it is not easy as an Indian to move to any of the EU countries. Firstly the global slowdown is biting in every single country. Secondly you will need a visa and it is not an simple as what an immigration agent may state it is. Thirdly in the field you indicate, then you will need fluency in Danish to be able to obtain a position anyway. Unless you have specialist skills which another EU/EEA person cannot meet including Danes, then why should an employer employ someone who only speak English when Danes generally speak Danish as a native language and English to an exceptionally high level as well. The simple fact is that you will only be able to work in Denmark if you can obtain a visa. (a) There is a Greencard system but you will need to hold Masters Degree in various streams like Engineers, Doctors, Researchers and PHD programs. This is for a max of 3 years. You can read more on the official site here http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/coming_to... (b) A work visa is exceptionally hard to obtain. Your employer would have to prove that the position can only be fulfilled by you alone and not by any other person in the total pool of labour available in the whole EU/EEA. Therefore many employers will not spend time or money on even interviewing non-EU applicants and even state on their adverts that any applicant must already be legally entitled to work in advance. http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/coming_to... So to answer your questions 1) Although Denmark has a relatively stable labour market (compared with other EU countries), unemployment is quickly on the increase. Look here for the official data showing this http://www.dst.dk/HomeUK/Statistics/Key_... 2) As mentioned, of course there is a "happy" situation on the agent's websites. They need to "sell" opportunities in order to get fees and therefore will usually only display the "good news" scenario 3) I can't answer that other than to give you sources http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinduism_in_Denmark and http://indiansindenmark.com/ which quotes "Out of a population of 5.3 million of Danish Population in Denmark, approximately we have 0.04% of Indian population and Indian community of around 2150" So I would suggest you do some homework, independently of just trusting an immigration agent's word for things. There is a lot of info on the web on trusted sources like the official Danish immigration dept site I mentioned

The job market here, is suffering at the moment. A lot of people are loosing their jobs - as in the most of the world. 1 year ago there were approx 1,5% who were registered as unemployed, now it has doubled. If you want to immigrate, be sure that you have a job first - other wise it is almost impossible. I don't know how many Indians are in Denmark, but the main rule for every one in Denmark is (Danish citizens, foreign workers, refugees etc.) If you are willing to work for it, you can have it all - if you are lazy, don't expect to much. Just as in most of the world. Living standards are better than in India, for the "ordinary" people. The richer people in Denmark don't have personal servants as they often do in India. It is possible to pay for help in the home, but it is at a total different cost, than in India. Good luck

Jamesina Originally Answered: Is it easier to Immigrate to Norway after studying there?
1. It's easier in the sense that you can start applying while still on your student residence permit (usually valid for a full year at a time, so you generally have the summer in the country as well). You'll be more familiar with the way things work, and you can apply for your work permit from within the country. All these things will make you more desirable. But, getting a job can still take considerable time, and you might have to return anyway, so be prepared financially. There is no longer a skilled jobseeker permit, so you wouldn't be able to extend your time to look for a job. 2. The *only* way to get a work permit (with the exception of being a migrant worker) is as a skilled worker. This means having a minimum of a bachelor's degree relevant to the field you're applying in. 3. The best way to see what jobs are in demand is to look at the nav website: https://tjenester.nav.no/stillinger/fors... Oil technology is highly in demand right now, but think carefully before getting a degree in it. It's only a matter of time before the field is saturated and it's a degree of limited use otherwise. Also, you'll have better luck in the far north. There are fewer positions, but there are also serious labour shortages. While knowing Norwegian isn't mandatory, it does help quite a bit, especially when writing your application letter (those are mandatory in Norway too, btw).
