Danish Visa and Residence Permit

Danish Visa and Residence Permit

The Danish Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, only issues visas in very rare cases.

In such rare cases please observe the following:

From October 2nd 2012, applicants need to appear in person for the collection of the biometric data: ten fingerprints and a photograph are collected from persons applying for a visa. Before the recording of the photo applicants may be asked to remove glasses or adjust head coverings if they hide facial features. Certain categories of applicants are exempt from the requirement to give fingerprints, including:  

  • Children under the age of 12 
  • Persons for whom fingerprinting is physically impossible 
  • Heads of State and members of national governments, and members of their official delegations when invited for an official purpose.

The introduction of biometric data is part of the Schengen Visa Information System (VIS). For more information about VIS, fingerprints, data protection and legal background, please see Visa Information System (VIS).

Only applicants with an appointment will be allowed to the Embassy’s premises. Applications and full documentation must be handed in not later than 70 days before departure.

Any other applications for visas must be handed in at the Visa Service Center in Islamabad. Further information in connection with applying for visa to Denmark can be found here:
