Residence permit

Updated application process

Due to the corona virus/COVID-19 situation, all VFS Global application centres in Canada are closed until further notice.

In order to submit your application for a residence permit in Denmark, you will have to make a personal appearance either at the Royal Danish Embassy in Ottawa or at the Danish Consulate General in Toronto. It is not possible to apply through our Honorary Consuls.

Please note that applications are accepted by appointment only. We will not be able to assist applicants who show up without an appointment.

The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) has currently suspended the Working Holiday scheme. This means that while you are still able to submit your application, SIRI will not process the application until the COVID-19 situation is alleviated. It is recommended that you do not submit a Working Holiday application until this happens.


 

Your original passport will be shipped to the Royal Danish Consulate General in Toronto for verification, but will be returned to you via courier (prepaid at VFS), usually within a week.

Please note: Canadian citizens are currently exempt from the entry permit (D-visa) requirement and can enter the host country with a valid Canadian passport and approval letter.

important notice

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.
