Denmark Short Term Visa

Visiting Denmark for tourism, transit, or business purposes? You might need to get a Short Term Visa for Denmark.

  • A visa allows you to stay a maximum of 90 days per 6 months in Denmark and is normally valid for the entire Schengen region.
  • If the visa has been issued for several entries of 90 days with a validity of between one and five years, the validity of the permitted stay is always 90 days per six months.
  • Processing time for this type of visa is normally a few days but can take up to 10-12 days if the consulate or embassy is busy.
