A visa normally grants you the right to stay in the entire Schengen area. A visa grants you the right to spend a maximum of 90 days in any 180-day period in the Schengen area.

The Schengen calculator can be used for calculating the travel days remaining under a Schengen short-stay visa according to the 90-days/180-days rule. The New to Denmark webpage has a brief guidance to the Short-stay (visa) calculator.

Starting from September 14, 2015, the Embassy has made it a necessity for all applicants above 12 years to meet up in person in order to record their biometric data. If the applicant has already had their fingerprints taken in other Schengen representations within the previous 5 years, he/she can also apply via courier with notary consent from the applicant. Read more about the biometric data collection here.

You apply for a Schengen visa to Denmark when: 
i)  Denmark is the only destination of the visit(s), OR
ii) the visit(s) include(s) more than one destination, Denmark is the main destination of the visit(s) in terms of the length or purpose of stay, OR
iii) if no main destination can be determined, Denmark is the country of your first entrance into the Schengen area.

Document requirements according to the travel purpose can be found at the site of our visa centres via this link.
