Visa information:

Visas are granted for stays up to 90 days. Denmark is covered by the Schengen cooperation. Visas issued by Danish embassies are normally valid for all Schengen countries.

An application for a Schengen visa can be handed in no earlier than six months prior to the intended entry into the Schengen area. For seafarers in the performance of their duties, a nine months rule apply.

As a rule, applications should at the latest be handed in 15 days prior to the intended entry into the Schengen area.

The Danish mission has 15 days to make a decision on the visa application from the date the mission receives the passport, application and biometrics. In some cases, the processing time can be extended to 45 days, when further case processing is needed.

If the applicant is travelling to the Schengen area several times within a period of two months, the applicant must apply to the Schengen country, which constitutes the main destination. The main destination is either where the applicant intends to spend the longest time or where the main purpose of the intended visit is carried out.
