Visa Requirements for Danish Citizens
Visa requirements for Danish passport holders are administrative entry restrictions placed by other countries on visitors from the Kingdom of Denmark. This includes citizens from Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands.
The Henley Passport Index currently ranks the Danish passport in the 5th position as the most powerful in terms of travel freedom. Danish citizens are able to travel visa-free or with a visa on arrival to around 140 countries worldwide.
Depending on the traveler’s country of destination, the purpose of the visit, and the intended length of stay, the visa requirements may vary.
If Danish citizens are planning a trip to a visa-required country they need to confirm which kind of visa they need according to their needs. This can vary between a visa on arrival submitted at border checkpoints, an electronic visa applied for through an online application form, and an embassy visa requested in person at a government office.
Visa-exempt countries allow Danish passport holders to spend short periods of stay, between 15 days up to 6 months, most commonly for purposes like tourism, to transit onward to another destination, or business.
Furthermore, Non-EU residents of Denmark traveling to another Schengen Area country have freedom of movement by presenting a valid passport or ID Card.
Although a visa is not requested to gain entry to some visa-free countries, Danish residents may need to submit an electronic travel authorization application before departure.
