As of January 2019 visa application is outsourced to the Denmark visa application centre in Tokyo operated by VFS Global. It is not possible to apply for visa to Denmark or Iceland at the Royal Danish Embassy or at the Danish Honorary Consulates in Japan.

Please note: Visa Self Service has changed to ApplyVisa from 1 July 2019. (Applicants can only use ApplyVisa after 1 July 2019.)

Visit the website of the visa application centre for information about how to book an appointment, document check list and how to submit an application.

The application procedures are standardized globally. Therefore the required documentation can sometimes be difficult to obtain locally. In these cases the applicant should instead submit other documentation which fulfils the purpose of the requirement. Example: Japan does not have marriage certificates. If a marriage certificate is listed as a requirement, the applicant may instead submit a Japanese family register, along with an English translation and a brief explanation about the document in English.

Translation of Japanese documents into English
All documentation which is only written in Japanese must be submitted together with a translation into English. Unless specified in the instructions, applicants can provide their own translation. If the instructions specify an authorized or legalized translation, please follow the instructions under Legalisation.
