the residence requirement will be removed from 1st February 2020.

However, if you apply for unemployment benefits before 1st February 2020, you must meet the residence requirement.

But you can get registered with your graduate rights on the day of graduating (mid January) - it is very important you get your graduate status registered at latest 14 days after graduation, and then just wait until February 1 to apply for Unemployment benefits ("dagpenge").

But try to ask your A-kasse if there is any way to get dagpenge already from the graduate date.
