Denmark opens new Visa Application Centers in three Chinese cities
Three Danish Visa Application Centers are scheduled to open to public on 1 of June, announced the Royal Danish Embassy to China on 31 of May.
The three new centers are part of Denmark’s continuous efforts to facilitate travel by a growing number of Chinese outbound tourists in the “China-Denmark Tourism Year 2017”, and add to the nine existing ones in Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Jinan, Nanjing, Shanghai and Shenyang.
“I am very pleased to see the new Visa Centers open their doors in Fuzhou, Shenzhen and Xi’an, representing a total population of 186 million in these provinces, and marking our step forward to promoting what Denmark has to offer as a destination for both sightseers and business travelers,” said A. Carsten Damsgaard, Ambassador of Denmark to China.
“What’s geographically significant is that the Center in Xi’an will provide applicants from five landlocked provinces and regions in Northwest China with easier access to Denmark and Europe.”
The openings came after five Centers were opened across China in the spring of 2016.
The Kingdom of Denmark (Denmark, Greenland and Faroe Islands) offers unique landscapes of natural beauty and cultural heritage of Hans Christian Andersen, fjords, icebergs and midnight sun in Greenland and unspoiled nature at the Faroe Islands.
Denmark was one of the first EU countries that have opened visa centers in China in 2010, since then, the bilateral people-to-people contacts in the field of tourism have thrived. The Danish government forecasts to receive 262,000 Chinese outbound travelers this year, up from 218,000 in 2016. The figure stood at 50,000 in 2009.
The travelers’ passion will further be ignited following that a social media post by the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing about an invasive plague of Pacific oysters along the Limfjord’s shores in Northern Jutland has attracted tens of millions of interactions on a possible “eating tour” to Denmark.
Applications for both short-term visa and long-term residence permit can be handed over to these 12 centers. Normally, the visa procedure takes approximately five to 11 working days, and a little longer during the high season.
The collection of biometric data also needs to be done at these Centers in accordance with the implementation of the Visa Information System (VIS). The fingerprint scans can be re-used for further visa applications over a 5-year period.
Denmark is the only country being able to issue travel permissions to Greenland and Faroe Islands along with the Schengen visa sticker.
Worth mentioning, Iceland is represented by Denmark in Shanghai and Guangzhou. It will therefore be possible to hand in applications for short-term visa to Iceland at the Centers in Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
