No opening regarding work in government's visa proposal

As a significant part of Danish business, the Danish shipping companies were hoping that the rules dictating when an employee from a foreign subsidiary is allowed to work in Denmark would be eased. But the issue is not even included in the new visa proposal.

There's no sign that Danish shipping companies will be able to let their employees from offices in Singapore or South America work even a little bit if they're attending courses in Copenhagen, Esbjerg, or Frederikshavn for a few days. At least not in the new proposal from the Ministry of Justice, which supposedly - according to the government's own words - serves to bring foreign companies, in particular, and employess and mariners, to bring them to Denmark.

The proposal was presented the other day, and according to ShippingWatch's information the matter was discussed when the committee originally began work to create more flexible visa rules. But the committee quickly agreed to send the question regarding whether to allow foreigners to work briefly when in Denmark on to the Danish Agency for Labour Retention and International Recruitment. This meant the matter would be handled by the Ministry of Employment, which administrates work permits related to international recruitment.
