Only the citizens of the European Union are allowed to travel to Denmark without a visa, but they are still required to carry their identity proof and passport along with them while traveling to Denmark.
The purpose of your visit determines which type of visa you will require for visiting Denmark. There are many types of visas available for entering the country, and they are:
Uniform Schengen Visa
In Uniform Schengen Visa, the third country residents are allowed to visit the country for a specific time period within the validity term. In this visa, short-term visits are granted to the third country residents that can be for multiple purposes. The maximum limit of a Uniform Schengen Visa is of 90 days for which a person can visit Denmark or any other Schengen territory. This visit of 90 days is to be made within the validity period of 6 months from the issuance of visa. There are two categories of Uniform Schengen Visa available. These categories are:
Category A is the first category in which the holder is allowed to visit the countries in the Schengen area only at airports for connecting flights through the Schengen countries. This visa is popularly called the Airport Transit Visa. The holders are not allowed to enter the Schengen region beyond airports in this type of visa. It is a mandatory document for the individuals that have any flight through Schengen territories.
In category C, the holders are allowed to visit the country for a limited time. This category is further bifurcated on the basis of a number of visits you need to pay to the Schengen countries in the validity for the allowed time duration. The allowance is for 90 days, and the validity of the visa is for 180 days from issuance.
Single Entry Visa
This type of visa is applicable for short-term visits to the country mostly for the sole purpose of tourism — this the most popular type of visa as it is the most applied visa among the types of visas. This visa allows the holder a stay duration of 90 days, i.e., 3 months within a validity period of 180 days, i.e., 6 months. In this type of visa, the holder is allowed to enter the country only once. If the visitor has left the Schengen territory once he cannot enter it again even if the duration of stay is not completed. This specification is mentioned on the visa sticker that is on the passport of the visa holder.
Double Entry Visa
The double entry visa helps the holder to visit the country twice in the given time period. It is the same as a single entry visa, the only difference here is that the holder is allowed to enter the Schengen territory twice instead of one. The one condition that is to be followed for this visa is that the total duration of stay should not exceed a total of 90 days and the visits should be made within a time frame of 6 months validity of the visa.
Multiple Entry Visa
In the multiple entry visa also, the holder is allowed to visit Denmark or any other Schengen territory for a total of 90 days within the total validity of 6 months. In this visa type, the holder is allowed to visit the countries of the Schengen area multiple times within the validity period. The holder can travel to-and-fro the Schengen countries unlimited times during a period of 6 months. The only condition here is that the total duration of stay in the Schengen areas cannot be more than 90 days.
Limited Territorial Visa (LTV)
In the Limited Territorial Visa, the holder is provided the permit to visit only one of the Schengen territories for a fixed duration within the validity term. This visa is only provided in specific conditions especially if the applicant has an emergency situation. An applicant can apply for Denmark visa under this category if he/she has to pay an emergency visit to the Danish territory. If you have been permitted with Limited Territorial Visa, you cannot pay a visit to the other Schengen territories.
National Visa is given to the individuals that want to stay in the Schengen area for a specific reason. The stay can be temporary or permanent. This visa is mainly provided to students or people who are working in the territory on temporary projects. This type of visa is also provided on a single entry and multiple entry basis to the applicants. In the single-entry national visa, the applicant is supposed to visit the country once, fulfill his/her purpose and then leave the country when their purpose is fulfilled. In case of multiple entries, the immigrant is allowed to travel among the Schengen territory and to move in and out of the same during his/her stay.
