The Consular Section

The Consular Department is working closely with the Danish Honorary Consulates to assist Danes who are experiencing problems during their stay in India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Nepal and Bhutan.

The visa team of the Consular Section also assists foreign nationals who wish to apply for a visa or residence permit for Denmark (as well as Greenland and Faroe Islands). We handle all visa and residence permit applications for residents of India, the Maldives, and Bhutan in close cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Employment. Furthermore, as part of a representation agreement with Iceland we issue visas for Indian applicants who wish to travel to Iceland. Please note that the Norwegian Embassy in Colombo is responsible for all applications from residents of Sri Lanka on behalf of Denmark.

The Embassy hired an external provider (the company VFS), which accepts visa and residence permit applications for us in India. The intention is to provide applicants with a better service: VFS is present at several locations in India (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and Kolkata) and is often more flexible, particularly with regards to opening hours.
