The Faroese Immigration Office
The Immigration Office works as an advisory service in regards to local Faroese issues for the Danish immigration authorities:
to provide information and advise the Danish Immigration authorities regarding residence and work permits for foreign nationals who wish to come to the Faroe Islands to work
to provide necessary local information for the Danish Immigration authorities in connection with family reunifications
to provide guidance for foreigners already in the country - mainly on application matters and permits
to help foreigners find the appropriate authority when they inquire on matters that do not belong to the responsibilities of the Immigration Authorities
Decisions regarding residence and work permits for the Faroe Islands are made by the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration and regarding family reunification are made by the Danish Immigration Service in Denmark.
