Denmark Travel Visa Requirements

Visa (short term)
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.

You can find a list of countries whose citizens require a visa to enter Denmark here.

A visa normally grants you the right to stay in the entire Schengen region. As of 21 December 2007, the region has been extended and the Schengen countries now comprise Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

A visa grants you the right to spend a maximum of 90 days per 6 months in the Schengen region.

Please note that if you have been granted certain types of residence or re-entry permits in another Schengen country, you may not need a visa to enter Denmark. If you hold certain types of residence permits issued by Switzerland or Liechtenstein, you may pass through Denmark. Your journey through Denmark may last no longer than five days.

A visa does not allow you to work in Denmark unless the Immigration Service has explicitly granted you this right.

Why a visa?
The purpose of applying a visa requirement to citizens of certain countries is to control who can enter and reside in Denmark and the other Schengen countries. The Schengen countries normally decide cooperatively which nationalities the visa requirement will be applied to. The countries are selected with consideration to immigration and security issues, as well as political concerns.

A visa is only intended to allow a foreign national to visit Denmark and/or the other Schengen countries for a limited period of time. If you wish to reside in Denmark for an extended period of time, you must apply for a residence permit.

If the Immigration Service suspects that you intend to seek permanent or long-term residency in Denmark or another Schengen country, your visa application will be turned down.
