Track your application
Once you have finalized your visa application in person, please note that your application is in process and kindly be aware that the visa section is unable to reply to status inquiries regarding visa applications via e-mail due to Danish National Law on the handling of personal information.
Please go to “track your application” on this website.
After the mission has processed your visa application, your application will be returned to the Visa Application Centre or delivered to you by Courier company (if you opted the Courier passback service).
Your application is either:
Approved - in which case you:
will receive your passport with a visa sticker. Please note that the Danish mission will add a grace period of 15 days to the validity period of your visa. Therefore, the validity period and duration of stay on the visa sticker is not the same. It is your responsibility to check that the information on your visa sticker is correct. Please see How to read the visa sticker.
Or refused - in which case you:
will receive a refusal letter with your passport, explaining the reason behind the refusal. The refusal letter indicates whether the refusal will be appealed automatically to the Danish Immigration Service or whether the applicant should appeal individually.
