Multiple-entry and long-term visas

If you need to travel to Denmark and the other Schengen countries on a regular basis you can apply for a long-term visa that is valid for multiple entries.

Multiple-entry visas can be issued under the following conditions:
  • The applicant has previously held and abided by the terms of a Schengen visa or visa with limited territorial validity and intends to leave the Schengen area before the visa applied for expires.
  • The applicant can document the need to visit Denmark and the other Schengen countries often and/or regularly, particularly in connection with business or a personal relationship.

You may be considered for a multiple entry visa if you are:

  • A businessperson,
  • A public official in regular contact with EU member states and institutions,
  • A representative of a NGO travelling for educational purposes or attending seminars and conferences,
  • A family member of an EU citizen,
  • A family member of a non-EU citizen legally residing in an member state, or
  • A seaman.

If a multiple-entry visa is issued permitting stays of up to 90 days and for between 1 and 5 years, the cumulative amount of time you are permitted to remain within the Schengen area is 90 days in any 180-day period.

Finally, in order to be issued a visa, you must meet all the standard requirements, including holding a valid travel document and travel medical insurance. Read more about the standard requirements for the issue of visas.
