On April 5, 2010, regulation no. 810/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a Community Code on Visas (Visa Code) enters into force.

For Denmark and all other Schengen member states, the Visa Code will hereafter be the regulatory framework for visas.

These new regulations imply new demands on the application, meaning that all supporting documents must be handed in along with the Schengen application form.

It is essential that you collect all of the following documents before presenting your application to the Mission:

  • Application form
  • Valid passport
  • Photo
  • Visa fee
  • All supporting documents

If supporting documents are not presented promptly, your application upon examination may be refused and the visa fee lost.

Please note that the requested supporting documents, as a general rule, are the same at all Schengen Missions (in the local area).

Photo Specifications


After the Embassy has installed a new system for scanning biometrics, including photographs for visa applications, it is now only possible to lodge a photograph of size 35 x 45 mm. Length of the head should not exceed 30 to 36 mm in length from chin to top of hair.

The photograph must still be in color with bright background.

Denmark Visa Application Centre has been instructed by The Royal Danish Embassy to inform applicants that the visa application is not acceptable if the photograph does not comply with the above format.

Applicants may therefore obtain a new photograph that meets all requirements before The Denmark Visa Application Centre can receive the application.

For further information see the print on the information board at The Denmark Visa Application Centre or visit website
