The Embassy of Denmark in Ottawa handles visa applications for Denmark (Greenland and Faroe Islands), Sweden and Iceland.

Planning to visit Norway?

As of December 31st 2019, the Royal Danish Embassy in Canada no longer represents Norway in terms of visas and permits.

Please follow the application procedures outlined on the website of the Embassy of Norway.

Applications submitted to VFS Global on behalf of the Danish Embassy prior to December 31st 2019 will be processed by this Embassy.

If you have submitted your application online via ApplyVisa with the intent of going to Norway, but have not submitted your application to VFS Global prior to December 31st 2019, please contact us and include the reference number listed on your proof of payment for a refund.

Manual applications (remember to apply online on ApplyVisa):

important notice

Please be advised that the total process for obtaining a visa consists of several parts:

  • It can take up to 14 days to obtain an appointment with VFS for submitting your application.
  • Once your application arrives at the Embassy, the processing time begins. The processing time varies depending on the current workload. Please see the front page for the current processing time.
  • Included in the overall handling time is also the shipping of your documents from VFS to the Embassy as well as the return from the Embassy to you.

 

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 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: 1 to 3 month prior is recommended.
