Entry to Denmark
Make sure you get to know all our everyday wonders – and the quirky bits too. So here’s a bit of helpful information about Denmark’s visas and immigration rules.
Is Denmark part of the European Union?
Yes, Denmark is a member of the European Union, which means travel to and from Denmark is governed by EU law. Therefore, different entry requirements may apply depending on where you’re travelling from, and what your nationality is.
What are the visa and entry requirements to Denmark?
EU citizens can travel freely to Denmark; citizens of other countries may require a visa. If you travel to Denmark from outside the Schengen agreement area, you may also require a visa. See here if you are from a country where you will need a visa to enter Denmark.

Brexit and Denmark
UK citizens can travel to any country in the Schengen area, including Denmark, for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. That also applies if you are visiting Denmark to attend business meetings, cultural or sporting events, or for short term studies or training. The whole visit has to be within the 90-day limit and visits to other Schengen countries within the previous 180 days count towards your 90 days.
At the Danish border control, UK citizens may need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queuing. Your passport may be stamped on entry and exit.
If you come to Denmark for work or a longer stay and are a UK citizen, from 1 January 2021 you will have to apply for permission. If you are in Denmark with a visa or permit, the trip does not count towards your 90-day limit.
