Before you apply, please ensure that you are very clear on your purpose of visit – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process, but we are not authorised to advise or guide you on choosing the correct visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa and how long it will take to process the application, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Danish mission.
Please gather the relevant documents provided in the document checklist based on the purpose of your trip (business, tourism, family visit etc.) [Tourist, Business, Visit to family]
Please note that your passport should be valid for a minimum of three months after expiry of the visa; must be issued within the last ten years and must have two blank pages - if you do not have two blank pages to which a visa can be affixed, a new passport must be obtained before submitting your application.

Embassies and consulates can also choose to present an application to the Danish Immigration Service. Decisions on these applications will be made by the Danish Immigration Service and rejections can be appealed to the Immigration Appeals Board. Rejection of applications for visa to the Faroe Islands and Greenland decided by the Immigration Service can be appealed to the Ministry of Immigration and Integration.
