For Prospective Applicants

Applicants who wish to apply for a visa are requested to kindly read the information on this site carefully. The guidelines listed on this site are to help you prepare your documents as accurately as possible. This will reduce the risks of your application being incomplete or take a longer time to being processed.

Please note that you may be required to appear for a personal interview at the Embassy of Denmark, Bangkok prior to a decision being taken on your application.



As part of the visa application all applicants to the Schengen States are requested to submit biometric data – ten fingerprints - as per November 14th 2013. The finger scans will be stored in the “Visa Information System” (VIS) for the following 59 months.

VIS is a system that allows Schengen States to exchange visa data. The main purpose of the VIS is to simplify the visa issuance process, facilitate checks at external borders and to enhance security for everyone involved, including applicants.
