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 30 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 web-site 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 (30 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Fees must be paid upon submitting the application and will not be refunded if a visa is not granted or the application withdrawn.
