Can I go to Denmark on my Schengen visa?
Yes. If you have a valid passport and either a valid residence permit for a Schengen country or a valid Schengen visa, you will not be needing a visa for visiting Denmark.
You cannot apply for a Schengen visa in any country; instead, you must apply in the mission or embassy of the country where you plan to spend the most time. If determining this is difficult, particularly if you are taking a cruise or a bus tour, you can apply for a visa for the country where you will be arriving first. This is assuming you spend the same amount of time per day.
How long can I stay in Denmark on my Schengen visa?
If you have a valid Schengen visa, it will be valid in Denmark as well. You will be allowed to travel as a tourist for a period up to 90 days within a 180 days period.
There are three categories of Schengen visa
Short stay visa: This visa allows for single or multiple entries and you can stay in the Schengen territory up to 90 days in the validity period of six months.
Long stay visa: This is issued for a period exceeding 90 days and are issued by the countries. The national legislation rules apply here.
Airport transit visa: This is required for people belonging to certain countries.
What if I want to stay for more than 90 days in Denmark?
Applicants that wish to stay in Denmark beyond 90 days in any 6 months period, will have to apply for a work/residence permit.
You can apply for a residence permit through either the Danish Immigration Service or the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI).
What is the processing time for short-term visas?
As per the EU Visa Code, the processing time cannot be more than 15 calendar days in general, and from 30 to 60 days in exceptional cases.
If the Embassy has full and satisfactory details about the applicant, it will issue visas as soon as possible.
Because of the high volume of applications received by the Danish embassy/consulate or the uniqueness of your case, the processing time can be extended to 30 days.
The embassy/consulate can take up to 45 days to process exceptional applications.
When should I apply for Denmark Visit Visa?
While it is advisable to plan ahead and apply well in time, do keep in mind that the earliest that you can apply is 90 days or 3 months prior to the expected day of your departure.
It is recommended that the request be sent as soon as possible and at least 16 calendar days prior to the scheduled visit. Please notice that applications must be submitted at least six months prior to the proposed tour’s start date.
Before their current visa expires, the holder of a valid visa may apply for a new one.
