You can obtain a visa by applying for a Denmark Schengen visa to realize your temporary trip to Denmark, which is included in the list of Schengen countries. The reasons for applying for this type of visa can be tourism, visiting family or friends, business trip, medical examination or treatment, short-term study, exchange programs and many other non-permanent nuances. If you want to study in Denmark for a long-term period of more than 90 days (such as bachelor's, master's, doctorate, etc.) or work permanently in an institution located here, apply for a Danish national visa if you have official invitations or acceptance letters from those educational and work institutions. you can

You apply for the "business visa" type of the Danish Schengen visa to realize your short-term business trip. It should be noted that a short-term business visa does not give you the right to work permanently in Denmark, this visa is provided for you to carry out your own business trip.

Denmark Schengen Visa

apply for denmark visa

Like other Schengen visas, the Danish Schengen visa can be single-entry or multiple-entry. At the same time, you can also apply for long-term visas, i.e. for three months, six months, one year, two years or five years. Once you have a Denmark Schengen visa, you can enter any Schengen country during your trip. However, in any case, we definitely recommend that you make your first entry into the Schengen area from the country where you received your visa, i.e. Denmark. Otherwise, if you try to enter the Schengen area with a Danish visa from another country, unless you mention it during your visa application, the border service of that country may turn you back and deny you entry. This experience has been experienced in some cases and therefore we advise you to avoid this risk.

If you apply for a Denmark Schengen visa, you must indicate Denmark as the country where you will stay the most during your travel period.

Documents marked with "*" must be submitted to the embassy in English. If you have obtained the original document in Azerbaijani rather than in English, in this case, each of these documents must be translated into English and certified by a notary and submitted to the embassy.

If you do not have the original of the invitation letter, you can submit a scanned version to the embassy in printed form. The invitation letter must have the signature and seal of the institution that invited you. Also, on the invitation letter, the name of the invited person, that is, your name, and additionally, if possible, your date of birth, passport number, and travel dates must be mentioned. If your place of stay is organized by the institution that invited you, in this case, you may not include a hotel reservation in your documents if the address of your stay is mentioned in the invitation letter sent to you.

After your documents have been accepted, in any case, during your visa procedure, you may receive a call from the embassy and you may be asked to submit new documents.

The amount in your bank account is based on the travel dates you have indicated, i.e. the length of your stay in Schengen, the price of the flight tickets and hotels you have booked, etc. varies depending. In general, it is recommended that you have at least AZN 3,500-5,000 in your bank account for a one-week trip (equivalent to Euro or US dollars). This amount should fully cover your travel plan. When calculating the amount, you can sum up the average daily cost of 70-80 euros for each day you indicate that you will stay in the Schengen area with the price of your ticket and hotel reservations, and expect a little higher than the figure you received.

If your expenses are covered by the institution that invited you, this must be mentioned in the invitation letter. In this case, you can provide a statement from your bank account, but in any case it is advisable to show a small amount in your account in your name.

If you are an entrepreneur, you can submit the documents that will replace the certificate from the workplace (a copy of the TIN, a certificate issued by the Ministry of Taxes about your turnover, an extract from the register of your company) to the embassy. If you are not working, studying or in any case sponsoring another person to cover the costs of your trip, in this case a copy of that person's identity card, proof of employment (if self-employed, the documents listed above), proof of bank account and statement (this bank account can be both in your name and in the name of the sponsor), if you have a family bond, a document confirming this (for example, if it is a parent, your own birth certificate, if it is a brother or sister, both of your birth certificates, etc.) and a paper about sponsorship to the embassy must be presented. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, in this case, if he is traveling alone, a copy of the permission document to leave the country from both parents or, if he is traveling with one of the parents, must also be submitted during the visa application.

It should be noted that even if you submit documents such as TIN, turnover certificate from the Ministry of Taxes, extract from the register of your company or sponsorship paper, permission paper, you must have each of these documents translated and certified into English by a notary.

Visa Procedure

visa application form

The application for the Danish Schengen visa is made at the VFS Global visa application center of the Norwegian Embassy in Azerbaijan located in Ankara. The visa decision is made by the consul in the consular section of the Norwegian embassy in Ankara.

It is possible to schedule a visa appointment to submit documents by contacting the Denmark VFS Global visa application center phone number +994 12 310 57 03 during weekday business hours. However, you can submit your documents by approaching VFS Global without an appointment.

Visa application can be made no earlier than 6 months before the date of the trip. Except for fingerprint exempt applicants, all applicants are required to be in person when submitting documents. Applicants who are free of fingerprints do not have to be personally present if they give a notarized power of attorney to another person to present the documents.

The Schengen visa procedure usually takes 4 weeks (excluding official non-working days related to holidays) from the date of application. This period includes the 10-15 days required for the delivery and return of the documents from the visa center in Azerbaijan to the embassy in Ankara, as well as the 10-15 days required for the decision to be made after the application is received by the embassy in Ankara.

The visa fee of €35 is paid online after completing and confirming the application form. When submitting the documents, the service fee of the visa center is 55 AZN, the two-way courier service fee is 74 AZN, and the SMS service fee is 3 AZN to inform about the completion of the visa procedure and the passport is ready. These payments are accepted in cash and only in AZN.

Note that if the applicant wants the visa result to be known sooner than 4 weeks, he can use the Premium Express delivery service to get his documents to and from Ankara faster. In this case, the courier should pay 208 AZN instead of 74 AZN. Premium Express can speed up the delivery process. In this case, the delivery and return of the documents to Ankara takes 5 working days instead of 2 weeks. This service has no effect on the duration of the visa procedure at the embassy. However, our experience shows that for urgent business trips or conference participation, the inviting institution can contact the embassy in Ankara and ensure that the decision is issued sooner than 15 days, or even within one working day.

Denmark Schengen Visa Probability

As with the visa application of any country, your chances of getting a visa in Denmark depend on the status of your profile. Your workplace and position should be normal and good, your monthly income should be slightly higher than the standard salary range (in experience, there have been many cases of obtaining visas for people with a monthly income in the range of 450-600 AZN), you should show enough money in your bank account to cover your entire trip, the nuances that bind you to the country Presence (property in your name, family and children) and travel history are factors that increase your chances of getting a Denmark Schengen visa. For those who have never had a Schengen visa before, the Norwegian embassy can be seen as a relatively risky first visa application option. Although in our experience there are many applicants who have received their first Schengen visa from the Norwegian embassy, unless the other nuances in your profile (listed above) are high, the Norwegian embassy is a risky embassy to get your first Schengen visa. In any case, having previous Schengen visas is a factor that increases your chances of getting a Danish visa from the Norwegian embassy. When applying for a business visa, the official letter of invitation you will present can increase your chances of getting a visa. If the purpose and reason for the trip stated in your invitation letter is related to your field of work or if you have made similar business trips before, these nuances will have a positive impact on your profile.
