Where to apply

Residents of Ghana, Liberia, Guinea (Conakry), Sierra Leone, and Togo should submit visa applications in Accra to VFS, the external service provider contracted by the Embassy of Denmark. Residents of Cote d'Ivoire may submit visa applications to VFS in Abidjan or Accra. Denmark does not have a diplomatic mission that can receive applications in these countries, so the Embassy in Accra will handle the applications.

Visa applications are received as described above and in the table below. Applicants who do not live in Ghana should consult the page 'Applicants outside Ghana' to learn more about the procedure.

To apply for resident permits the procedure is different. The Embassy of Denmark in Accra only receives applications for residence permits for Iceland and Denmark. Applications for residence in other countries should be submitted to a diplomatic mission of that country. E.g. to apply for residence in Finland or Sweden, the applicant should consult the Finnish or Swedish Embassy in Abuja.
