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.
Due to upcoming changes in the visa application process in Canada, there will be a temporary procedure in place starting August 1st 2014. This procedure will be in place for the duration of the transition period and until the new application process has been established.
As of August 1st, visa applications can no longer be submitted through BLS International. Instead, applications must be submitted accordingly:
All visa applications must be submitted in person, however if you have previously had your biometrics (photo and fingerprints) recorded for a Schengen visa, you are able to courier your application to us. If you courier your application to the Embassy 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.
To book an appoint prior to August 1st 2014, please continue to contact BLS International.
To book an appointment on or after August 1st 2014, please contact the Embassy or the individual consulates directly:
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.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to technical difficulties the visa department is currently approximately a week behind in case processing. If your departure date is coming up please write an email to email@example.com indicating your name and departure date in the subject field. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
