Applicants outside Ghana

Applications for visa (short stay) from residents in Liberia, Guinea (Conakry), Sierra Leone, Togo, and Cote d’Ivoire are handled by the Embassy of Denmark in Accra. Denmark does not have a diplomatic mission that can handle applications in these countries; however there is an application centre in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire receiving visa applications for Denmark.

Applicants who are applying in Ghana but not living in Ghana can have their passport and other documents couriered back to their country of residence. Nationals of countries in the ECOWAS area have been allowed to travel in the area using a copy of their passport and the receipt for the visa application as documentation.

Applicants from countries outside ECOWAS, e.g. Cameroun*, usually choose to return to their country of residence using their passports after submitting their application and then send the passport by courier to the Embassy in Accra.

Applicants who have previously travelled to Schengen and had their fingerprints collected for the first time less than 59 months ago, may consult the Embassy for guidance on whether they will be required to apply in person.

Applicants visiting more than one Schengen country should submit the visa application to a diplomatic mission representing the country where most time during the visit will be spend or where the main purpose of the visit is.

*: Visa applicants should normally submit their applications in their country of residence or to the Embassy that is side-accredited to their country of residence. E.g. Residents in Ghana wishing to visit Denmark applies through the Danish Embassy in Accra. Residents in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea (Conakry), and Togo applies through the Embassy in Accra. Residents in Nigeria applies through the Danish Embassy in Abuja. Residents in Cameroun applies through the Danish Embassy in Ouagadougou. It is however possible to submit in another country, if the applicant has a valid reason to do so.
