Visas, Residence Permits and Danish Passports

Welcome to the Consular Section of the Danish Embassy in Islamabad.

On these pages you will find information about the kind of assistance the Embassy can offer you, if you are in need whilst travelling abroad.

As a general rule, the Danish Foreign Service, including Danish representations abroad, will assist all Danish nationals and - in as far as possible - foreigners with a permanent address in Denmark. However, persons not holding Danish nationality, or persons holding dual nationality, cannot be certain that the authorities of the country in question will accept that Denmark offer assistance, if the particular case is a conflict with the authorities of that country - e.g. cases of imprisonment.

Consular services include issuing Danish passports, Danish driving licences, visas for Denmark/Schengen, and assistance in connection with illness and death, imprisonment, child abduction cases etc.

As a general rule a fee is applicable to most services, with the exceptions of imprisonment, child abduction cases and in the instance of a serious crime committed against a Danish national.

The Danish Foreign Service is not empowered to grant funds in cases where Danish nationals and foreign nationals with a permanent address in Denmark are in need while travelling abroad. This applies whether it concerns requests to borrow money for a ticket back to Denmark, payment of hospital bills, medical evacuation, legal costs etc.

For advice to Danish nationals on travelling abroad, please visit the Consular homepage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Råd om udlandsrejser og Rejsevejledninger, Danish only). Please note that advice and recommendations on this homepage are given with the usual provision for errors and omissions and that the Embassy is not liable for any damages or loss as a result of the information given on these pages.

All applicants are requested not to contact agents. Agents charge high prices for false documentation, which usually results in a flat out refusal. Many applicants have complained that they have lost high sums of money by relying on agents. Applicants are requested to inform the Embassy of any agents that they may know of.

Information from other authorities and advice and guidance is provided on the homepages of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However, the Ministry of Foreign of Affairs cannot be held responsible for possible problems regardless of the information on the homepages.
