Business, Tourist and Private Visitor Visas

A Schengen visa is issued for the purpose of a short stay (less than 3 months) in Denmark/Iceland and other Schengen countries.

Schengen visas are issued by: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

NEWS!!!! Visa Waiver Agreement between the EU and Peru.

The Visa Waiver Agreement between the EU and Peru (except The UK and Ireland) provides for visa free travel for the citizens from the EU and Peru when travelling to the territory of the other party for a maximum of 90 days in any 180 days period.

The agreement is valid for holders of ordinary, diplomatic, service, official or special passports issued by a EU Member State or Peru.

The agreement is valid as of March 15, 2016. 

The Danish Consulate General in New York is also issuing visas to Iceland.

You have to apply for the Schengen visa at the Embassy/Consulate of your MAIN destination. The MAIN destination is the country where you are staying the longest time or where the main purpose of the trip is carried out.

If your intention is to travel to several Schengen countries without having a MAIN destination  and you will be staying the same amount of time in each country, you must apply for the Schengen visa at the Embassy/Consulate of the point of entry into Schengen.

How to apply:

Visa applicants must register their application online through the Visa Self Service Denmark. Upon registration and payment of the visa fee the applicant must print out the Visa Self Service Cover Letter and submit it with the required documents on the checklist. No two-sided copies are allowed.

Please select the checklist that matches the purpose of your visit and make sure you collect all the mandatory documents:

Business visa checklist

Private visitor visa checklist

Tourist visa checklist

The visa officer may request additional documents at any time.

If supporting documents are not presented promptly, your application upon examination may be refused and the visa fee lost.


If you have had your biometrics recorded after June 1, 2014 in North America with the specific purpose of obtaining a Schengen visa, we may be able to reuse the fingerprints for a new application.
