It is the Danish Immigration Service that decides where you are accommodated as an asylum seeker. The asylum centers in Denmark are run by the Danish Red Cross, by municipalities in different parts of the country and by the Danish Prison and Probation Service (who run the departure and removal centers). Upon arrival as an asylum seeker in Denmark you will initially be accommodated at Sandholm Reception Center, which is run by the Danish Red Cross. After a period of time, you will transfer to a residential center, run by either the Danish Red Cross or by a Danish municipality.
