Danish Visa Rules

Information about who needs a visa for entering Denmark.

If you wish to visit Denmark for a short period of time, you must obtain a visa prior to entry if you come from a country with a visa requirement for entering Denmark.

Here you can see the list of countries whose citizens need a visa to enter Denmark.

If you have a valid passport and a valid residence permit for a Schengen country or a valid Schengen visa, you do not need a visa to visit the Schengen countries. You can travel as a tourist for a period of up to 90 days within a 180 days period. This means that if you have a valid Schengen visa, it is also valid in Denmark or if you have a Swedish residence permit you can also visit Denmark. Be aware that Greenland and the Faroe Islands are not a part of Schengen and you therefore need a special visa to visit these places.

If you have a visit visa for Sweden, the processing time of an application for visa to Denmark might take up to 30 days. Therefore, please contact the embassy well in advance before your intended travel. All visa applicants need to book an appointment prior to visiting the Embassy. Please call +46 08 406 75 00 during consulate opening hours to arrange an appointment.
