Visa Policy for Denmark
The Danish visa policy defines the regulations and requirements that foreign citizens from all over the world need to meet in order to travel to Denmark.
As Denmark has signed the Schengen Agreement, it shares the common Schengen visa policy. Therefore, passport-free travel is permitted to citizens of the 26 countries in the Schengen Area, if they simply present a valid National ID Card at a Danish border checkpoint.
A number of other foreign citizens from outside the Schengen zone are also visa-exempt for Denmark and can currently enter the country for a stay up to 90 days for purposes of tourism, business, medical treatment, or transit.
To do so, they are currently only required to present an eligible passport valid for at least 3 months from the intended entry date to Denmark. However, an additional requirement will soon apply for all visa-exempt travelers to Schengen countries.
By 2022, all those who have visa exemption for Denmark and the Schengen Area will be required to obtain an ETIAS authorization online before they can board transportation bound for these European countries for a short stay.
Visa-exempt travelers who need a long-term stay in Denmark must apply for an embassy visa through a government agency, embassy or consulate.
All other foreign citizens need to obtain a Danish embassy visa to visit the country no matter the period of intended stays. While submitting a consular application, it is necessary to indicate the type of visa for Denmark required, whether a tourist, business, work, student or transit visa or other visa option.
