Photo Specifications

Size of photograph for visa applications

After the instalment of a new system for scanning biometrics, including photographs for visa application, it is now 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.

Danish Visa Application Centre has been instructed by Danish mission 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 Danish Visa Application Centre can receive the application.

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

Processing time

The average period for processing a Visa application is 15 working days calculated from the date when the application is received at the Embassy. Please note that missing documents may delay the answer of the Embassy further more. In some cases, the process of the Visa application could take from 30 to 60 days.

For Syrian applicants, the processing time for Syrian applications is longer than usual as all Syrian applications are submitted to the Danish Immigration Service and consequently it is recommended to apply at least two months before expected departure.

Applicants can instantly track the status of their application by clicking on. Track your Application.
