These arrangements make it easier for citizens of those countries to visit Denmark as tourists.

The travel agency arrangements mean that the Danish diplomatic mission (embassy or consulate) in each of these four countries is authorised to issue visas for up to 30 days to tourists form these countries.

The following requirements must be met:

  • the trip must be organised by a travel agency that has been accredited by the Danish Immigration Service and a travel agency in the country in question that has been accredited by the Danish embassy of the Danish consulate general to take part in the arrangement,
  • the travel agency accredited by the Immigration Service and the travel agency in the country in question established a collaboration agreement, and
  • documentation must be provided proving that the trip is a package deal that includes, at a minimum, transport and a reservation at a hotel.

Each application for a visa is submitted by the travel agency in the country in question. First time applicants who have not had their biometric features recorded must have them recorded. Fingerprints recorded less than 59 months from the submission of the application will normally be valid. The Danish diplomatic mission may call the applicant for an interview or ask for further information.

In order to be granted a visa under the travel agency arrangements, the applicant must meet the general requirements for issuing a Schengen visa.
