The US visa policy details different options available to international travelers for visiting the country. Obtaining a US ESTA for Danish citizens is highly advantageous for Danish passport holders.
Firstly, the US ESTA is valid for up to 2 years from the date of issue, which gives the traveler plenty of time to visit the United States.
Nationals of Denmark can make multiple visits to America during this time, using the same ESTA.
Secondly, the US ESTA allows the individual to stay in the country for up to 90 days per visit.
The simple online application process is far more convenient than having to apply at an embassy. It allows Danish citizens to obtain permission to travel to the US without going anywhere, using a computer or device connected to the internet.
This travel authorization is valid for tourism, business, and transit, allowing travelers to avoid having to obtain a separate visa for each of the reasons above.
Remember to complete an ESTA application before traveling to the US from Denmark for any of the above reasons.
Danish passport holders interested in traveling to the United States for long-term studies or seeking full-time employment should note the ESTA does not cover these activities. They should arrange a visit to the American embassy in Copenhagen and inquire as to which authorization they will need.
