Do I have to apply for a Danish Visa at an embassy or consulate?
In many countries, Danish Embassy or Consulate officials do not process initial applications or conduct your visa application interview, an essential part of the process where you will submit supporting documents and provide biometric data. The main visa application partner of Denmark is the firm VFS Global - so they may act on the country’s behalf in your nation. They can help arrange your appointment and track your application on behalf of the embassy. Their website : vfsglobal.com/en/individuals/index.html
What if Denmark does not have an embassy or consulate in my country?
Denmark does not have an embassy or consulate in every state, so if there isn’t one in your country, then officials from another Schengen country, or their visa applications partner, such as VFS Global, will act on their behalf.
What does this have to do with travel insurance?
If you plan to apply for a Schengen Visa to Denmark, you need travel and medical cover or your application will be refused, and AXA’s Low Cost Travel Insurance only costs €0.99 ($1.11) per day of your trip and will meet your visa requirements, while the AXA Schengen Europe Travel Insurance offers extended coverage up to costs of €100,000.
Those seeking a multiple-entry visa can purchase the Multi Trip insurance from €298 per year, which again covers you for expenses up to €100,000.
