Application should be submitted at the Gerry’s/VFS Visa Service Center along with a non-refundable visa application fee.

General Information

On April 5, 2010 regulation no. 810/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a Community Code on Visas (Visa Code) entered into force. For Denmark and all other Schengen member states, the Visa Code will hereafter be the regulatory framework for visas.

These new regulations imply new demands on the application, meaning that all supporting documents must be handed in along with the Schengen application form.

It is essential that you collect all the required documents before presenting your application to the outsourcing agency, including supporting documents. If supporting documents are not presented promptly, your application may, upon examination, be refused and the visa fee lost. Please note that the requested supporting documents as a general rule are the same at all Schengen Missions in the local area.

A person applying for a short term visa for Schengen will as a minimum be required to submit the following documentation together with an application form and family information form. (Electronically typed in or hand written application/form with capital alphabets is preferred.)

Requirements for Afghan citizens

Afghan nationals living inside Pakistan, who fly out from Pakistan and coming back, need to bring a valid Pakistani visa with a validity of at least 3 months after the planned return date to Pakistan.

For those who are flying from Afghanistan and come back to Afghanistan the above mentioned condition is not required.

If an applicant does not show any flight reservation with a Danish destination, the applicant has to provide a consent letter signed by the reference in which he declares to pick up the applicant from the destination.

Afghan applicants must submit their original Tazkara duly attested by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kabul-Afghanistan or any Embassy/Consulate.  If the applicant is visiting spouse in Denmark, original Marriage Certificate with English translation (both attested) should also be submitted.

Due to the current situation between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the Embassy will not require Afghan nationals to submit their passports for visa case processing.  Therefore, the Embassy only needs coloured copies of all pages of their passport(s).
