Denmark is not only the cultural entrance to Scandinavia, but it is also the geographical gateway to Scandinavia, and as such, the nation is well linked to the rest of Europe and to Scandinavia. Denmark is connected to Europe and Scandinavia by a multitude of ferries, and Copenhagen airport serves as the major Scandinavian hub, due to its southern latitude, which makes it a logical stopping place for flights between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe.
Denmark is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement.
- Border restrictions are usually not required between nations that have signed and implemented the pact. This covers the majority of the European Union as well as a few additional nations.
- Before boarding foreign planes or boats, passengers’ identities are typically checked. Temporary border restrictions are sometimes used at land boundaries.
- A visa issued to any Schengen member is also valid in all other countries that have signed and implemented the treaty.
Citizens of the countries listed above are allowed to work in Denmark without the requirement for a visa or any other permission for the duration of their 90-day visa-free stay. This right to work without a visa, however, does not necessarily apply to other Schengen nations.
Furthermore, nationals of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States are allowed to stay in Denmark for up to 90 days without a visa, regardless of how much time they have spent in other Schengen countries (time spent in Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland, though, does count against this 90-day exemption).
You may apply for a visa at your nearest Danish embassy, although in many countries where Denmark does not have a consular presence, other Nordic (Scandinavian) embassies (Sweden, Norway, or Finland) are generally allowed to process visa applications. More information is accessible from the Danish immigration services.
