Avenues for appeal
If the Immigration Service turns down an application for a visa, the applicant, the reference residing in Denmark, or another party in the visa case can appeal the case to the Ministry of Justice
The appeal must include the case number, full name of the applicant, nationality and date the ruling was given.
Any complaints regarding the conduct of a Danish diplomatic mission can be made to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Complaints regarding another country’s diplomatic mission should be submitted to that country’s foreign ministry.
You cannot file a complaint about the rejection of a visa application by a Danish diplomatic mission.
An application can be re-opened if a visa was denied due to insufficient information.
The applicant or the Danish host can submit the additional information together with a request to re-open the case to the Immigration Service.
Once the Immigration Service has received the information and the request, it will decide whether the case can be re-opened. A case can only be re-opened if the new information is regarding the actual situation at the time a decision was made in the case.
If the applicant's or the host's situation has changed after the decision was made, the applicant will need to submit a new application for a visa to the diplomatic mission, which will then decide whether a visa can be granted based on the new information.
