Visa Requirements for Danish Citizens

First, let's clarify what the term used in the title means. Visa requirements for Danish citizens are established rules and conditions that apply to Danish passport holders when traveling abroad.
The pre-established conditions will vary depending on the country you arrive in as a Danish citizen. However, Danish citizens have great freedom of movement. More than 180 countries allow Danish tourists to visit without a visa or to apply for a visa upon arrival. Dozens of countries allow Danish citizens to travel visa-free for short periods of time (from 14 to 365 days, usually 90 days) usually without requiring tourists to apply for a visa through the embassy or the system. Additionally, many countries offer an eVisa system for Danish passport holders.
An e-visa is the easiest type of travel permit to obtain as the entire process can be done online by following a few simple steps. The approved document will then be sent directly to the applicant's email address as a PDF file. Danish citizens can also apply for a visa on arrival in certain countries. The downside to waiting to arrive is that you have to line up and wait at the border, which can take a while. However, some destinations still require Danish citizens to have an embassy visa. A traditional travel permit can be obtained by going to the embassy yourself and going through the regular visa application process.

Requirements for obtaining a visa on arrival vary from country to country and you should check with your local embassy or consulate for up-to-date information on country-specific requirements.
Some requirements for visa on arrival are:
  • You must have a valid passport or travel ID and a return ticket.
  • You must also book a hotel room with your contact information or address and the number of days you plan to stay.
  • Proof of health insurance in the form of a letter from your insurance company.
  • Make sure you have enough money for your travel needs.
You should check visa requirements and confirm with the embassy or consulate before booking your flight.
Please note!
Many visas in destination countries also have an eVisa system.
Check if your chosen destination has an online visa option, as it’s much safer to travel with your visa in hand! Apply for an eVisa to avoid long VoA queues and the stress of being uncertain about getting your travel permit at the last minute.
