Updated: Temporary suspension of reception of short stay visa applications to Denmark

Due to the current restrictions on entry into Denmark, it is temporarily not possible to apply for a short stay visa to Denmark from abroad. This means that applicants cannot fill in an application online or hand in the application at a Visa Application Center (VAC).

Applicants who have handed in their short stay visa application at a Visa Application Center or Danish mission prior to 20 March will have their cases processed.

In urgent cases where an applicant has to travel to Denmark in the period until 31 August 2020 and has a worthy purpose for entering Denmark, the applicant can contact the relevant Danish mission.
