Going to Denmark

Short stay visas

Denmark is part of the Schengen Region in Europe and a short stay visa for Denmark is a Schengen visa. A Schengen visa is issued for the purpose of a short stay of less than 90 days in Denmark and other Schengen countries and does not give the holder right to reside or work in Denmark. As of 1 June 2016, the German Embassy in Yangon handles applications for Schengen visas to Denmark.

The German Embassy in Yangon represents Denmark in visa matters in Myanmar and therefore handles all visa applications for short stays of less than 90 days in Denmark. Detailed instructions on how to apply for a Schengen visa are found on the website of the German Embassy here.

Application for short stay visa to Denmark through the German Embassy will as of 1 March 2019 be accepted by VfS Global in Yangon and from 21 March 2019 also through VfS Global in Nay Pyi Taw.  To apply for a visa applicants will need to book an appointment and fill in the online visa application form here.

Applicants are advised to make sure to book an appointment at least 6 weeks before the planned departure in order to ensure an appointment early enough to allow sufficient time for processing the visa application. Applicants cannot expect to get an appointment immediately, often the earliest appointment is several weeks ahead. The Embassy cannot assist applicants who are unable to get an appointment at the desired time and any questions regarding short stay visas to Denmark should be directed to the German Embassy in Yangon.

The German Embassy in Yangon only handles visa applications in connection with visits to Denmark of up to 90 days. Applicants wishing to stay in Denmark for a period exceeding 3 months in connection with e.g. study or work must apply for a residence permit in person at the Embassy of Denmark in Bangkok.
