Visa

Temporary Application Guidelines

As the Canadian provinces are going through different phases of reopening, our external service partner VFS Global is currently only recieving applications in Vancouver and Ottawa. The VFS centre in Toronto is closed until further notice.  

Before submitting an application for a visa, please keep the following in mind:

  • The Canadian travel advisories for Denmark and Iceland are still in effect.
  • You must still self-quarantine for 14 days upon your return to Canada.
  • Depending on the type of your visit, there may be minimum requirements in terms of length of stay. Please carefully read the regulations on the official information portal for COVID-19 for Denmark.
  • Depending on the type of your visit, you may be required to submit documentation in addition to the regular visa checklist. Please familiarise yourself with the requirements on the information portal.
  • Please note that we no longer process applications for Norway or Sweden. Please contact their respective Embassies for assistance.

To book an appointment after July 20th, please use the online booking module provided by VFS Global.

Only a limited number of appointments are available and you must expect longer processing time.  The regular 15-day processing time cannot be guaranteed at this time.

It is important that you arrive on time for your appointment. Please do not arrive early, as time is needed to properly sanitise between applicants. Appointments for late arrivals will be rescheduled.

Apply online and make your payment on ApplyVisa. It will not be possible to pay the fee at the VFS Global office.

Please review the document checklists carefully and ensure to bring all of the required documents, so we can handle all applicants in a timely manner.

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.
