Visa to Denmark

Denmark is one of the countries participating in the Schengen Agreement, and in order to visit it, Russian citizens must obtain a visa in advance. Documents for its registration are submitted to the Danish visa centers in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities of Russia. Requirements for the package of documents are standard “Schengen”. To the visa fee of 35 EUR, you need to add a service fee for the services of the visa center (about 2925 RUB). A visa is issued promptly – as a rule, within 8 working days; due to the relatively unloaded Embassy in comparison with other diplomatic missions of the Schengen countries, there are no delays. The prices on the page are for November 2021. According to COUNTRYAAH, Denmark is a country that starts with letter D.
