New procedure for residence permit

After May 20 2012 Danish residence permit cards will contain an electronic chip with photo, fingerprints and signature recorded digitally as a security measure.

What does it mean?

1. Applicants must be prepared to have their photo, fingerprints and signature recorded when applying for residence permit
2. Applicants must make colour copies and put the documents in the application package in the proper order before submitting it.
3. If the application is approved by the Danish Immigration Service, the applicant will receive the residence permit and can then travel to Denmark. Here, the applicant must register at the local Municipality Office and within the next weeks the biometric residence card will be forwarded by postal mail to the applicant’s address in Denmark.

Applicants should be aware that there are different procedures at the Danish missions in Beijing, Shanghai Guangzhou and Chongqing, so be sure to read about the procedures on this website and newtodenmark.dk before applying.

Step 1
Applications for Schengen visa and Danish residence permits are accepted at the Visa Application Centre.

Step 2
Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your ‘purpose of visit’ – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa and how long it will take to process, as this is entirely the prerogative of The Royal Danish Missions in China.

Step 3
Please go to the link “All about visas” to understand details of various visas.

Step 4
Please ensure you read the security regulation notices before you visit the Visa Application Centre.
