Processing Time

According to the EU Visa Code, the maximum case processing time cannot exceed 15 calendar days, or in exceptional cases 30 or 60 days, respectively.

Visa applications which have to be sent to the Danish Immigration Service (DIS) for further assessment may require additional processing time. See DIS’s website ( for more information.

Please note:

1. In peak travel periods, applications submitted at short notice will not, as a rule, be prioritised ahead of applications that have been submitted in time.

2. Our peak season is from March through September. During this period we recommend that applications are submitted to VFS minimum 3 weeks in advance to ensure the application is processed in time.

3. Applications are only accepted within 3 months of the requested date of arrival.
