Visa applications from non-Turkish citizens

Representation agreements

In a number of countries in the region, Denmark does not have a diplomatic mission that can issue visas. Therefore, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have a number of representation agreements with other Schengen-states, allowing applicants to hand in visa applications with Denmark as the main destination. The representation agreements normally only include visa applications.

See the list of representation agreements and learn where in the region you can lodge your visa application

Please note that there are currently no representation agreements for Iraq and Syria.

The agreements are to be viewed as an offer to visa applicants in countries where Denmark has no representations, which are authorised to issue Schengen visas. However, it does not exclude the possibility of submitting an application to an authorised Danish representation, which can process the application according to Danish procedures, legislation etc., including complaint instructions.

A refusal from another Schengen country does not lead to an automatic refusal by Danish authorities.

If the applicant does not want to make use of the representation agreement, the applicant can – for example – choose to travel to Turkey to hand in the application. It is a condition that the applicant is staying legally in the country of application (e.g. crossed the border legally and has an entry stamp) and that there is a valid reason for not submitting the application in the applicant’s home country.
