Documents: Family, friends and tourist visits

It is possible to apply for a visa to visit family and friends, as well as for tourist visits

Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration information about the relation to the host in Denmark, applicant’s situation in the home country, the purpose of the stay, the circumstances of any previous stays, the general conditions in the applicant’s home country, and known immigration patterns.
In countries where the risk that applicants from those countries will remain illegally in Denmark or other Schengen States is generally considered to be relatively low, visas are usually granted to a wider circle of people than in countries characterized by a higher risk of illegal immigration.
