When to apply

Applications should be submitted as early as possible, but not more than 3 months before planned departure.

The processing time for visa applications is normally up to 15 calendar days. The counting starts from the day the Embassy receives your application, which normally happens on the first workday after the application is submitted to VFS. We ask all applicants to apply well in advance of their intended travel date

Applications may in some cases have to be referred to the immigration service in Denmark and may thus take between 30 and 60 days to process — the latter when the immigration service requires further documentation.

Please see Processing time for more information.
