A visa is issued for the purpose of a short stay (maximum 90 days) in Denmark and other Schengen countries. Employment is not permitted during the stay covered by the visa.
Foreign citizens who are exempted from basic visa requirements can stay, but not work, in the Schengen region up to 90 days.

Residence and Work Permits
For sojourns longer than 90 days as well as stays in connection with studies or employment, including work as au pair, a residence and/or work permit is required. However, special rules apply to citizens from the Nordic Countries, the EU Member States as well as Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
