NB! Due to the current restrictions on entry into Denmark from the United States, it is only possible to apply for a Schengen visa to Denmark on a limited basis at the Visa Application Center (VFS) in New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Houston and San Francisco. If an applicant has to travel to Denmark and has a worthy purpose for entering Denmark, please contact the Danish Consulate General at

Read more about what constitutes a worthy purpose at the website of the Danish Police:

If you travel to Denmark from the United States which is classified as a 'banned country', you must present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before entry. If you fail to present such a test, you must expect to be refused entry as from Monday, 26 October 2020. On this page you will find information about rules and required documents.”

The  Consulate General of Denmark in New York is a Regional Visa Hub for the United States and Canada. In the United States we process visa applications for Denmark, Faroe Islands, Greenland and in Canada we process visa applications for Denmark, Faroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland. You must have legal stay in either of the countries where you apply.

The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has commissioned VFS Global to operate the Danish Visa Application Centres in the US and in Canada.  

Applicants applying for short-term business, private visit or tourist Schengen visas for Denmark should submit their applications and have their biometrics obtained at one of the VFS Global's offices. By appointment only.

Detailed information on how and where to hand in your application can be found on the homepages of VFS:
