Document List

An ETIAS authorisation will be required for every Australian citizen for short-stay period in Denmark starting from 2021.


The Danish government, like all the countries joining the Schengen area, eliminated all border passport control. All the visitors entering Denmark from Germany, Sweden or other (Schengen Countries) are exempted from showing their passport to Danish authorities; in this case, a national identity card is the only document needed. Traveling with a passport is still mandatory in case of direct landing in one of Denmark's overseas territory (Greenland and Far Oer). All the travel documents must be valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond the period of intended stay. All the Passports (or equivalent travel documents) issued more than ten years before the date of travel, may not be accepted.

A Schengen visa is mandatory for all nationals of Australia who stay in the country for a period greater than 90 days.
For short stay visits (less than 90 days within a period of 180 days), the visitors are exempted from obtaining a valid Schengen visa.
An ETIAS authorisation will become a mandatory requirement for every Australian citizen starting from 2021.
ETIAS will have a validity of five years, and it can be used for an unlimited number of entries.
