Denmark Visa FAQs

  • add What is a Denmark Schengen visa?

    A Denmark Schengen visa is a special kind of visa which allows you to travel among all the Schengen countries including Denmark for a maximum period of upto 90 days. This is a traveller’s dream where with one visa you can travel to any of the other 25 Schengen countries along with Denmark.

  • add The Schengen Visa is valid for which countries?

    A Schengen Visa (issued by a consulate or embassy of a Schengen State) is valid for all 26 States of the Schengen Area (including the European territory of Denmark), unless it is marked otherwise on the visa sticker. So you do not need another visa to enter or stay in the European territory of Denmark. However, you must be in possession of documentary evidence for the reasons of your stay and your means of support. Schengen Area comprises of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

  • add How long can I stay in the Schengen area on the basis of my visa?

    The Schengen Visa is a short stay visa and takes the form of a sticker affixed to your passport. The definition of “short stay” is a stay of "90 days in any 180 days period". This means that the total duration of stay is of maximum 90 days in any period of 180 days. The precise length of validity of your Schengen Visa is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading “Duration of visit”. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading "Number of entries" by "1". A two-entry or a multiple-entry visa allows for two or several entries during the validity of the Schengen Visa. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "02" or "MULT" under the heading "Number of entries".

  • add Will all Schengen Visas be granted for 90 days?

    No, not necessarily all Schengen Visas will be granted for 90 days. You may get the Schengen Visa only for the number of days that you present in your travel itinerary and your flight & hotel bookings

  • add Can I apply again for a Schengen Visa if my application has been refused earlier?

    You may appeal against this decision. The decision to refuse a Schengen visa and the reasons for the refusal are notified using a standard form that is handed out by the Member State's consulate that refused the visa. The notification of the refusal must include the reasons, on which the refusal were based, and the procedures and deadlines for submitting an appeal. You are free to re-apply again if your application has been refused earlier. However, it is recommended that you take note of the reasons for the earlier refusal before submitting a new application and make amendments, where necessary. The visa fee is not refunded if the visa is refused. The visa fee covers the cost of the examination of the visa application.

  • add What is the Schengen Visa cover letter?

    The Schengen Visa cover letter is a letter which summarizes your intent to travel to a country that is part of the Schengen area. In your cover letter you should explain:

    • the purpose of your trip
    • when and where you intend to travel
    • how your trip is going to be funded
    • day-by-day itinerary for your trip
    • duration of the trip
  • add Is it possible to extend my Schengen Visa while in Denmark?

    You cannot extend your Denmark short-stay while in Denmark except in special circumstances, and exceeding your permitted period of stay is considered an act of illegality or criminality. Instead, you must return to your home country within the permitted period of stay and apply for another Denmark Visa if necessary.

  • add Can I leave the Schengen area and return again with my Schengen visa?

    Schengen visas may allow for a single-entry or multiple entries. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "01". With a visa allowing for two or multiple entries you may enter twice or several times during the validity of the visa.

  • add If my Denmark short-stay multiple entry Schengen Visa is valid for a year, how long can I remain in the Denmark territory?

    A short-stay Schengen Visa allows you to enter and stay in a Denmark territory for a maximum period of 90 days within a period of six months.

  • add How long before the start of the intended visit should I apply for a Schengen Visa?

    You may only submit your Schengen visa application 90 days before your date of departure. We recommend that you apply at least 20 working days before the date you wish to depart as certain types of travel purpose may take longer than usual to process. For instance, the processing time of your Schengen Visa Application will take between 5-15 working days from your appointment date

  • add How long does it take to obtain a Denmark Visa?

    Typically, a visa takes anywhere from 10 days to 15+ days to process in the Czech Republic Embassy/Consulate. The processing time for a visa is dependent on several factors and can change without notice at the consulate's discretion

  • add What is the role of VFS?

    VFS Global Services Pvt Ltd (VFS) is the Service Delivery Provider for the Embassy of Denmark in New Delhi. The role of VFS is to accept visa applications and to dispatch passports and documents back to clients, on behalf of the Embassy of Denmark. VFS does not play any part in or influence the outcome of your visa application.

  • add How can I check the status of my Denmark Visa application?

    Applicants can check the status of Denmark visa application online using the Denmark VFS Reference number and Date of Birth. Kindly visit the Track Your Application section of the Denmark VFS website.

  • add Will I get my visa at the end of the process?

    As an application centre, the Denmark Visa Application Centre (VFS) will not be able to guarantee you a visa. The issuance or refusal of a Denmark visa is the sole prerogative of The Embassy/Consulate. The Denmark Visa Application Centre cannot influence this decision in any way.

  • add Is it mandatory for me to take an appointment for a Denmark Visa?

    Yes, an appointment is mandatory for Denmark Visa in order to provide your biometrics and submit your visa documents.

  • add I have a valid long stay visa/residence permit for a country that is part of the Schengen area. Do I need another visa to travel to other Schengen states?

    No. A long stay visa or a residence permit issued by a Schengen State allows you to travel or stay in other Schengen States, while respecting the maximum duration of a “short stay” (a stay of "90 days in any 180 day period")

  • add My family is also applying for a Denmark Visa, how many appointments should we make?

    Every member of the family needs an individual appointment.

  • add I am traveling to multiple Schengen countries. From which Consulate should I apply for my Schengen Visa?

    Schengen Visa must be applied from the Embassy / Consulate of the country where you will be staying for maximum number of days. If your stay has equal number of days in each country then you must apply to the Embassy / Consulate of the country which would serve as the first port of entry.

  • add Can I leave the Schengen area and return again with my Schengen Visa?

    Schengen Visas may allow for a single-entry or multiple entries. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "01". With a visa allowing for two or multiple entries you may enter twice or several times during the validity of the Schengen Visa.

  • add What is the difference between a single-entry Schengen Visa and a multiple-entry Schengen Visa?

    According to the EU, a single-entry Schengen Visa allows entry to the Schengen area only once, meaning you are not permitted to re-enter the Schengen Area after leaving, while a multiple-entry Schengen Visa allows multiple entries into the Schengen Area within the visa’s validity period (90 days total within 180-day period).

  • add Do I have to present any other document at the Schengen external borders apart from my travel document with the Schengen Visa?

    The short-stay visa does not automatically entitle you to enter the Schengen area. At the border (or during other controls) you may have to show the visa but also provide additional documentation, for example; sufficient evidence that you have sufficient means to cover the stay and the return trip. It is therefore recommended that you carry with you copies of the documents which you presented when applying for the Schengen visa (e.g. letters of invitation, travel confirmations, other documents stating the purpose of your stay).

  • add Do I have to apply in person for the Schengen Visa?

    Yes, applications by mail will not be accepted. The Schengen visa application should be presented in person because biometrical data must be recorded.

  • add I am a family member of an EU-citizen. Are the standard requirements applicable to me?

    Family members of EU citizens who have exercised their right of free movement (meaning that the EU citizen resides in or travels to a Member State other than his/her country of origin) benefit from certain procedural facilitations. The basic criteria to be fulfilled are the following:

    • the EU citizen has exercised his/her right of free movement
    • the family member (applicant) belongs to one of the categories covered by Directive 2004/38/EC
    • the family member (applicant) accompanies the EU citizen or joins him/her in the Schengen State of destination.
  • add Why is personal appearance mandatory for Denmark Visa?

    As from 2nd November 2015 following the introduction of the Visa Information System (VIS), all Schengen visa applicants in India have to appear in person in order to provide biometric data (fingerprints and digital photography). The photograph can be digitally taken at the time of the application or scanned from an existing one. For subsequent applications within the 5 years the fingerprints can be copied from the previous application file in the VIS. In case of reasonable doubt regarding the identity of the applicant, the consulate will again collect fingerprints within the 5 year period specified above. Furthermore, the applicant may request that they be collected if, at the time when the application is lodged, it cannot be immediately confirmed that the fingerprints were collected within this 5 years period.

  • add Do I need to provide travel insurance for my Visa application?

    Yes. Applicants should prove that they are in possession of adequate and valid travel insurance to cover any expenses which might arise in connection with repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical attention and/or emergency hospital treatment or death, during their stay(s) on the territory of the Schengen Member States. The insurance should be valid throughout the territory of the Member States and cover the entire period of the person’s intended stay or transit. The minimum coverage must be EUR 30000.

  • add What are the Schengen Visa travel insurance requirements?

    Your travel Insurance plan for a Schengen Visa must meet the following requirements:

    • Minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros (approx. USD $34,000)
    • Coverage for repatriation for medical reasons
    • Coverage for emergency medical treatment
    • Coverage for expenses resulting from your death
    • Coverage for the entire period of your intended stay
    • Valid in all Schengen Area countries
  • add Can you process the Travel Insurance for me?

    Even though Travel Insurance is a mandatory requirement for processing Schengen Visa, you are strongly advised to purchase a health / travel insurance to secure yourself as medical treatment can be very expensive in the Schengen country. Your travel insurance offers protection against unexpected emergencies on international travel such as coverage of medical expenses, flight delay and cancellations, passport and baggage loss or personal accident. For financial safety and security on your international trip we highly recommend you to purchase travel insurance and avail our special offer.

Denmark travel guide

Even though Denmark is regarded as the cleanest nation on Earth and the happiest, tourists don’t just flock here by the millions to experience swimmable harbors and a breath of fresh air. Denmark may be the smallest Scandinavian country, but it packs a mighty punch. Read more

Once a mighty Viking powerhouse, today it is one of Europe’s most exciting travel destinations.

Famous for its capital, Copenhagen, has been named the coveted "world’s most livable city" tag on multiple occasions. Much of the culture and entertainment revolves around here, but that isn’t to say that this small country is short on tourist hotspots. Castles, Baltic beaches, impressive fjords, wild forests, and culturally-rich towns make up the rest of the Scandinavian nation. Music is the sound of life in Denmark too, so tourists will be able to enjoy a range of festivals and events to keep the blood pumping. Copenhagen offers a wealth of interesting tourist attractions, but is also a great place to simply enjoy a relaxing afternoon in a café or a stroll along the Stroget Pedestrian Zone to see the latest fashions. Some of the most popular sights in Copenhagen are the palaces; the queens residence known as Amalienborg Palace, the Christiansborg Palace which holds the seat of the Danish Government, and the Rosenborg Palace, the seasonal residence of the Royal Family. Other top attractions include the National Museum, the Round Tower, the Little Mermaid, and the Tivoli amusement park, to name just a few.

Nearby on the island of Funen is the city of Odense, an industrial town, most well known for being the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. The Hans Christian Andersen Museum, located in the house where he was born, is one of the main attractions, showcasing the life and works of this famous writer. Also of interest is the Art Hall, found in an old textile factory which now holds the Arts Center, as well as shops and restaurants.

Other popular trips in Denmark include Roskilde, one of the country's oldest towns, the city of Arhus with a lovely Gothic church and an Open-Air Museum, and the port town of Svendborg. Strategically located between Europe and Scandinavia, Copenhagen International Airport is the busiest air hub in the area. However, many visitors are starting to opt for European railway connections to get to Denmark like from Hamburg in Germany. In addition to air, rail and road, Denmark is also expediently reached via Baltic ferries. Surrounded by the Baltic Sea, getting here from other maritime-rich nations like Norway, Finland, Sweden, Belgium, and the Netherlands is simple and cheap.

Scenic day-trips and short holidays by rail and bus make it possible for tourists to sightsee dazzling Denmark. From Copenhagen, car rental is readily available, but unnecessary if you’re staying within major cities which all have excellent public transportation. Island hopping by ferry is the perfect way to explore the Danish islands

For a relatively small country, Denmark offers a delightful mix of things to see and do. Possibilities range from exploring the shops and culture of city life, to touring old castles, and visiting the small towns and offshore islands. While tourists sometimes fail to venture beyond the capital city of Copenhagen, the country also has lovely rural areas with interesting towns and sights. Visitors will definitely want to take some time to explore the capital, but those with more than just a day or two should also head out to other areas.

Places to visit in Denmark

1. Copenhagen

Cool, calm and sophisticated, Copenhagen is every inch a 21st-century Scandinavian capital. It can be found facing Malmo across the Oresund Strait, rising against the rollers of the Baltic Sea in a patchwork of red-tiled medieval roofs and uber-modern new builds. It is home to more than one million Danes and hosts neighbourhoods like Vesterbro and Christianshavn, where chic cafes abut restaurants like Noma (oft hailed as the single greatest fine-dining joint in the world!). Right at the heart of the capital stands the enchanting Indre By; a web of narrow streets and alleyways where the formidable Rundetarn tower and the ancient fortifications of Slotsholmen stand tall, and the Tivoli Gardens throb with energy and life. In short: there’s never a dull moment in this truly bucket-list metropolis.

2. Faroe Islands

Rising like hulking, petrified rocks where the Norwegian Sea fuses with the North, the Faroe Islands are the stuff of legends. Their coastlines are dramatic in the extreme; chiselled and sheer-cut, carved by crashing waterfalls and topped with a layer of verdant green grass. The Northern Lights shimmer in the sky, while the timber towns and hamlets below hide rowdy fisherman’s taverns and pubs that tick over to the trademark local folk shanties. While only half-in and half-out of Denmark (the Faroe’s are self-governing), these otherworldly and far-flung islands rarely fail to draw a gasp!

3. The Danish Riviera

Running the length of the island of Zealand’s northern coast, the so-called Danish Riviera is home to some of the finest beach resorts in all of Scandinavia. Particularly popular are the castle towns of Helsingor and Hillerod, which play host to the majestic Kronborg Castle (the stomping ground of Shakespeare’s Prince Hamlet no less) and the elegant Renaissance Frederiksborg Palace respectively. Beach wise, Gilleleje and Hornbaek take the biscuit with their yellow stretches of sun-splashed sand, backed by undulating dunes and colourful beds of roses. And then there are the coastal forests, headed by the primeval beech groves of Gribskov (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the much younger Scots pines of Tisvilde.

4. Odense

The urban jewel in the touristic line-up of Funen Island, Odense is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. However, there’s much more to this quaint and charming town than its honorific exhibitions and monuments to arguably the greatest fairy tale teller of all time (and there are plenty of these!). Yes sir, there are the gorgeous turrets and moats of Egeskov Castle, the looming Knuds Kirke and the sepulchre of King Canute himself, street upon street of elegant low-rise Scandinavian homes, cobbled squares in the old quarter and creaking timber windmills on the edge of town. What’s more, a lively university scene and countless cafes add a dash of energy and nightlife to the mix, while Odense Zoo remains the best in the country.

5. Skagen

Resplendent Skagen, its rows of terracotta-roofed houses and painted timber buildings, glows against the deep blue-grey of the North Sea. A magnet for painters and poets over the years, Denmark’s northernmost town is famed for its fresh air and postcard location between the Jutland beaches and the dunes. One aged lighthouse stands as testimony to the town’s long held connection to the sea, while oodles of glass, pottery and craft boutiques along the beachfront rows and Sankt Laurentii Vej street have cemented Skagen as a town for artsy types and

6. Roskilde

Thanks to its namesake rock and pop festival that booms on the fields to the south of Roskilde each year in June and July, this Zealand city has become almost synonymous with hedonism. However, even if you don’t head in to pitch the tent and party, Roskilde has plenty on the menu. For one, the town boasts an uber-long history that has its roots in the pagan age of the Vikings, while the old quarter at the heart of the city comes adorned with one seriously gorgeous UNESCO cathedral, the ochre facades of the Roskilde Palace, the acclaimed Viking Ship Museum on the edge of the Roskilde Fjord, a clutch of haunting stone churches from the Middle Ages and a welcoming population of students that ebbs and flows with the local university’s terms.

7. Skjoldungernes Land National Park

A relatively recent addition to Denmark’s line-up of national parks, the Skjoldungernes Land is a fascinating and beautiful area that encompasses sections of Frederikssund, Roskilde and Lejre in the very heart of Zealand. It’s famed for its eerie Viking burial mounds, which bubble up unexpectedly from the rolling meadows and grassy hills here as a testimony to the onetime dominion of the Iron Age King Skjold. The most famous of these ancient sepulchres can be found around the town of Lejre, which sits enfolded in enchanting swaths of beech forest and decorated with the pretty Baroque faces and manicured gardens of the Ledreborg Palace to boot.

8. Aarhus

Denmark’s second city makes its home on the edge of the Kattegat Sea, and sits enfolded by the wild forests of Djursland. A town that’s always on the up, Aarhus throbs with culture and heritage. Museums like the ARoS and the Den Gamle By (one of the largest open air exhibitions in the country) draw in big crowds, while the old centre of half-timbered homes and Germanic municipal buildings is perfect for strolling and indulging in café culture. Meanwhile, interesting boutiques showcase the town’s indelible creativity on Stroget shopping street, and the emporiums and tea houses of the Latin Quarter are almost irresistible. And that’s not even mentioning the electric nightlife, led by the massive student population during term times!

9. Thy National Park

Spread out over more than 240 square kilometers on the windward tip of Jutland, the untrodden Thy National Park is a place which still holds true to Scandinavia’s reputation for wild landscapes and untouched natural beauty. Between its borders, the reserve encompasses undulating dashes of heath and bog, coastal dunes dressed is tawny sea grasses, sporadic pockets of conifer forest and the occasional bucolic hamlet set to the sound of the northern rollers. Hiking and biking are two of the top activities here, and travelers eager to delve into the park can now make use of countless kilometers of maintained trails.

10. Fredericia

Nestled in the coastal join between the Jutland Peninsula and the pretty island of Funen, Fredericia began life as a purpose-built fortified town to protect Danish lands in the aftermath of the Thirty Years’ War. Today and this conflict-ridden past still oozes out of every gate and bulwark that make up the encircling city walls, while monuments like The Foot Soldier stand as testimony to Fredericia’s continued strategic importance right up until the start of the modern age. And if you’re not into your military history, there’s also one seriously gorgeous stretch of sand to be found at the city’s Eastern Beach, along with pretty Palsgaard Lake, a clutch of earthy Jutland taverns and oodles, oodles more.

11. Billund

Set right in the heart of the Jutland Peninsula, tiny little Billund is really known for one thing and one thing only: Lego. Started here in the early 1900s by the Danish entrepreneur Ole Kirk Christiansen, the global brand still informs the local way of life. On the edge of town is where travelers will discover the Lego factory, while the piece de resistance is surely the famed Legoland Billund theme park, where the likes of the adrenaline-pumping Dragon coaster, the Polar X-plorer, Duplo Land and Danish-inspired Vikings River Splash all draw up to a whopping two million visitors a year!

12. Bornholm

Stranded on its own betwixt the icy rollers of the Baltic Sea, the island of Bornholm is a laid-back place where travelers can seek out salt-washed fishing villages, rugged seascapes complete with chiselled granite cliffs, Scandinavian timber towns, deep forests and anthropomorphic monoliths protruding from the ocean. In the north, the gorgeous Hammeren Peninsula is a favourite amongst walkers, boasting windswept cliffs and undulating farm fields, stone churches and beautiful lighthouses to boot. Wide Dueodde beach also draws a crowd, while the gorges and forests of Almindingen are watched over by European honey buzzards and white-tailed eagles. In short, this one’s perhaps Denmark’s prettiest natural enclave!

13. Ribe

Picture-perfect Ribe hails in as Denmark’s oldest town. Its roots go all the way back to the 9th century, and its sloping cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, ice-cream coloured cottages and wobbly web of red-brick buildings stand as testimony to a past that’s wrapped up in tales of the Vikings and a medieval merchant boom. At the town’s heart rises the majestic spires and towers of the Ribe Cathedral; a veritable palimpsest of architectural styles that’s said to be one of the most elegant Romanesque constructions in the country. And once the history and heritage is done and dusted, Ribe’s array of excellent restaurants and bespoke beer and sweet shops await. Nice.

14. Aalborg

Sprawled out over the banks of the pretty Limfjord Sound, Aalborg is a post-industrial centre with a difference. Its urban heart is decorated with a series of famous half-timbered mansions, while students flock to the city universities during term time and bring a lively, youthful vibe in tow, adding a ceaseless chatter to the waterfront promenade and sleepless energy to the meanders of Jomfru Ane Gade (the longest party street in all of Scandinavia if you believe the locals). Aalborg is also known for its curious yearly carnival; one of the largest in northern Europe, when the folk of Jutland flood the streets with fancy dress, music and beer-fuelled festivities.

15. Kerteminde

Perfect for travelers eager to glimpse the timeless, sleepy side of uber-pretty Funen Island, Kerteminde offers a quaint array of timbered homes and winding cobblestone streets. The centre of the town has changed little since the late Middle Ages, despite the appearance of a few enticing coffee joints and restaurants, while fantastic exhibitions like the Ladby Viking ship and the home of famous national painter Johannes Larsen add just a dash of ancient history and culture into the mix. Others will head to Kerteminde on route to the windswept reaches of Romso Island out at sea, where some of Denmark’s most remote natural landscapes await in all their rugged glory!
