Extended access to refunds of visa application fees when withdrawing visa applications to Denmark

16.03.2020  13:24
As of 14 March 2020 the Danish Government has implemented extensive restrictions on entry to Denmark due to the Corona virus/covid-19.

These restrictions mean that you can expect to be rejected at the Danish borders even with a valid visa. The only exceptions are foreign travelers who have a valid visa AND a worthy purpose for entering. Worthy purposes include travelers who are either parents or primary caretakers (e.g. foster parents) of minors residing in Denmark, visits to critically ill family members, persons who are in the process of a medical treatment in Denmark, persons who are attending a funeral in Denmark, and persons who will be part of a court case in Denmark. Ordinary tourist visits, family visits and business travel are not considered worthy travel purposes. For more information please visit the website for information from the Danish authorities.

Applicants who applied for a visa to Denmark and who did not yet receive a decision can chose to withdraw their application. Normally, the visa application fee will not be refunded if the processing of the visa application has started. Due to the implemented entry restrictions it has been decided to make an exception to this rule. As of Monday 16 March all applicants who wish to withdraw their application and who handed in the application before 14 March will get a refund of the visa application fee.
Travelers who has already been granted a visa will not be able to get a refund of the visa application fee, even if the entry restrictions prevent them from entering Denmark.
Please contact the relevant Danish mission, if you wish to withdraw your visa application.
