Welcome to the Embassy of Denmark’s visa section, where you will find information on visa applications for Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Simply read the general information and follow Visa Step 1-2-3 to apply for a Schengen visa to one of these countries.
Addresses for the VFS Global Application Centres can be accessed here.
All visa applications must be submitted in person, however if you have previously had your biometrics recorded for a Schengen visa (photo and fingerprints), you are able to courier your application to VFS Global. You must include an updated passport photo of yourself. If you courier your application to VFS Global and your biometric data is not available in our system upon receipt, you will be contacted to make a personal appearance.
Please note that any previous biometrics must have been recorded for the purpose of a Schengen visa. If your biometrics have been recorded for visas to the US, UK or for purposes related to Canada, these cannot be used for a Schengen visa and you must appear in person in order to apply.
Please note that neither the Embassy nor our consulates can be held responsible for technical difficulties, human errors or shipping delays in the processing of passports, permits and visa applications.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to apply in time for the intended departure.
For passports: 5 weeks prior
For permits: 3 months prior
For visas: A minimum of 18 days prior (15 days of processing plus shipping).
The processing times may be longer than this during peak travel season (May, June, July, August and December) due to case volume or if cases require further scrutiny.
