Do I need Visa?
Foreign nationals wishing to visit Denmark for a brief period sometimes need to acquire a visa. To see whether nationals from your country require a visa to visit Denmark see the New to Denmark website.
Who processes visa applications?
Visa applications are processed by the Danish Immigration Service in cooperation with Danish embassies abroad. Visa applications can be submitted at all Danish embassies and at some consulate generals and consulates. Danish honorary consulte generals and honorary consulates do not issue visas, however, in some cases they have permission to receive visa applications and send them to the relevant Danish embassy for processing.
In some countries, Denmark has entered into an agreement with other Schengen countries and these countries' embassies process Danish visa applications on Denmarks behalf. The following cities are covered by such agreements: Representation agreements

How long will it take to process my application?
Under certain circumstances, Danish embassies and consulates can make visa issuance decisions independently. Whether this is the case determined by the applicant's nationality, the purpose of their visit and other attendant circumstances. Danish embassies and consulates will normally be able to process your application within a few days of receiving it. Some applications are referred to the Danish Immigratrion Service for approval and, given this, it's important that you submit your application well in advance of your visit as under such circumstances it will take longer to process your application.
