From which Schengen country should my visa be applied
You must apply for a visa from the country of your main destination, that is, the Schengen country where you will spend most days. If you spend an equal amount of time in two or more countries, you must apply for a visa to the country of your first entrance into the Schengen area.
For example: If you plan to have four days of meetings in Denmark followed by two days of meetings in Sweden, you should apply for a visa at one of the Danish Visa Application Centres. If you are staying four days in Denmark followed by four days in Sweden, you should still apply at the Danish Visa Application Centres, since Denmark is the first destination in your visit to the Schengen countries. If you spend two days in Denmark and four days in Sweden, however, you must apply for a visa at a Swedish representation.
It must be underlined that deviations from these rules are illegal and will not be tolerated.
Visa for Iceland
The Danish Embassy represent Iceland in India, Bhutan and Maldives. Visa applications for Iceland can be submitted at the Danish Visa Application Centres.
Visa for Greenland and The Faroe Islands
Visa applications to Greenland and Faroe Islands should be submitted to the Danish Visa Application Centres. Other Embassies in the Schengen cooperation cannot grant you a visa for Greenland or The Faroe Islands.
