Numerus peregrinorum in Daniam venientium temperabitur et condiciones, quibus asylum petentibus venia commorandi conceditur, fient difficiliores. Licentia perpetuo in Dania manendi peregrino non dabitur, antequam septem annos ibi habitaverit. Antea haec licentia post triennium data est.

Illud ius antea nullo modo circumscribebatur. Propositum est impedire, ne peregrini fictis matrimoniis concives suos nomine familiarium in Daniam inducant.
