In a number of countries where Denmark has no representations, which are authorised to issue Schengen visas, Denmark has entered into an agreement with another Schengen country, which implies that application for visa can be handed in there.
The agreements normally only cover application for Schengen-visa (short stay visas). Applications will be processed in accordance to the rules and procedures of the country representing Denmark. Norwegian and Swedish Embassies also receive applications for residence- and/or work permits.
Two kinds of agreements • Agreements where the application will be submitted to the Danish Immigration Service in case of doubt. In case of no doubt, the Schengen country representing Denmark will issue the Schengen visa.• Agreements where the Schengen country representing Denmark can also give refusal if Schengen visa according to the rules cannot be granted. In case of refusal, complaint instructions will be provided, including information about relevant authority in the country which has given refusal.

The agreements is to be viewed as an offer to visa applicants in countries where Denmark has no representations, which are authorised to issue Schengen visas. However, it does not exclude the possibility of submitting an application to an authorised Danish representation, which can process the application according to Danish procedures, legislation etc., including complaint instructions. Refusal from another Schengen country does not lead to an automatic refusal by Danish authorities.
