Fees for visa and residence permits

Fees must normally be paid when a foreign national applies for a visa or residence permit.

The fee for processing a visa application is (in 2016) 60 EUR + a 10 EUR administration fee to VFS. All fees are to be paid to VFS in local currency (GHS).

If you are applying for a residence permit you should normally — in addition to the fees above — pay a processing fee in order for your application to be processed by the authorities in Denmark. Please consult the website of the deciding authorities in Denmark for more information about fees related to processing applications for residence permits.

The fees are covering:

  • Handling at VFS (10 EUR)
  • Handling at the Embassy (60 EUR)
  • Handling of applications for residence permits by the authorities in Denmark (overview here).

Fees must be paid upon submitting the application and will not be refunded if a visa is not granted or the application withdrawn.
