Legalising supporting documents

The supporting documents, such as educational degrees/diplomas, marriage/birth certificate etc., must be legalised with an Apostille Stamp from the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India. Since India is also a member country of the Apostille Convention, there is no need for additional legalisation of the documents by the Danish representation in New Delhi. Applicants who do not legalize their original documents might later face difficulties while trying to register with the municipality in Denmark.

While your case is pending

You, your family or other persons including the reference in Denmark should not contact the Embassy and inquire about the status of your pending case unless it is because you have further information relating to the case. The Embassy will contact you either because we need further information or because we have received the decision from the Danish Immigration Service / Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration regarding your application.
