Track your application

Once you have finalised your visa application in person, please note that your application is in process and kindly be aware that the visa section is unable to reply to status inquiries regarding visa applications via e-mail due to Danish National Law on the handling of personal information.

Please go to “track your application” on this website.


After the mission has processed your visa application, you will be contacted by the Visa Application Centre. 

Your application is either:

Approved - in which case you:

will receive your passport with a visa sticker. Please note that the Danish mission will add a grace period of 15 days to the validity period of your visa. Therefore, the validity period and duration of stay on the visa sticker is not the same. It is your responsibility to check that the information on your visa sticker (e.g. name, validity dates, passport number etc.) Please see How to read the visa sticker. If the sticker contains inaccurate details, inform the Danish mission or the Visa Application Centre immediately in order to have it corrected.

Please be aware that possession of a visa does not confer an automatic right of entry in to the Schengen area. At the Schengen border, you will be asked to present your passport with the Schengen visa sticker and you may be asked to present documentation such as proof of sufficient funds to cover your stay in the Schengen area, documentation of the purpose of your visit (invitation, hotel booking(s) etc.) or a return ticket departing the Schengen area.

Or refused - in which case you:

will receive a refusal letter with your passport, explaining the reason behind the refusal. The refusal letter indicates whether the refusal will be appealed automatically to the Danish Immigration Service or whether the applicant should appeal individually.Read more about appealing a decision to the Danish Immigration Service here. The refusal letter contains a guidance on how to appeal the decision. If you wish to submit a complaint regarding the conduct of the staff at the Visa Application Centre, contact the Visa Application Centre where you handed in your application.

Please note that if your visa application is refused, the visa fee and service fee to the Visa Application Centre is not reimbursed.
