School travel lists
The school travel lists for EU school trips is for pupils/students who are non-EU citizens, who have residence permits in Denmark and who plan to stay for a short time or travel through one or more EU countries or Schengen countries.
The list of travellers form can be used by students from age 6 to approx. 22 in the ordinary Danish school system:
- Primary schools (folkeskole)
- Private schools
- Independent boarding schools for lower secondary students (efterskole)
- Youth schools (ungdomsskole)
- Gymnasium schools and
- HF courses
- Technical schools and colleges
Hvad angår andre skoler, fx bosteder med undervisning, beror det på en konkret vurdering, om skolen vil blive anset for omfattet af ordningen. Det er afgørende om skolen primært retter sig mod unge mennesker.
Other schools will be evaluated on a case by case basis in order to decide whether the list of travellers can be used in connection with a school trip. It is crucial whether the school primarily focuses on young people.
If the student is entered on a list of travelers form and a photo of the student has been attached, the student does not need a visa, passport or other travel document; nor does he or she need a re-entry permit to participate in a school trip to an EU country or Schengen country.
It is recommended that the school contacts the appropriate flight or travel companies before departure to ensure that the flight or travel company accepts list of travellers as a valid travel document.
Please note that only the original form can be used as a visa/travel document.
If a student is a citizen of a non-EU country and has a personal, valid passport, only the student's name, national security number, place of birth and nationality together with the school's stamp and the signature of the school principal are required. This list – which functions as a visa – does not need to be certified by the Danish Immigration Service or any other authority. The student must bring his or her passport on the trip.
If a student does not have a personal passport, the list can also be used as a passport. This is done as follows:
- The list is filled in with the student's name, national security number, place of birth and nationality together with the school's stamp and the signature of the school principal. A passport photo of the student must be attached. Please note that the photo must be glued onto the list and not stapled to it, as the Immigration Service will stamp over the photo.
- The list must be sent to the Immigration Service for certification.
- After returning home, the list of travelers must be sent to the Immigration Service.
The list of travellers form can be obtained by contacting the Immigration Service or the nearest police station capable of recording biometric features. See list of police stations
