Some foreign nationals who wish to visit Denmark for a short period of time must obtain a visa prior to entry, if he or she comes 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 grants the holder a right to stay in the entire Schengen region. See a list of the Schengen countries here. A visa gives the holder the right to spend a maximum of 90 days per 6 months in the Schengen countries. A visa does not grant the holder the right to work in Denmark.

Find out more about how to apply for a visa, the needed documentation and when a visa to Denmark is granted.


All visa applications must be submitted via the Danish missions abroad (all embassies and certain consulates) by May 2009 to ensure processing in due time before World Outgames in 2009.

A visa will only by valid for 6 months from the day it is issued. You should therefore apply for your visa no earlier than 1 February 2009 and no later than 1 May 2009.
