Applicant’s fingerprints and photo
From May 10th 2012,
applicants need to appear in person for the collection of the biometric data: ten fingerprints and a photograph are collected from persons applying for a visa.

Before the recording of the photo applicants may be asked to remove glasses or adjust head coverings if they hide facial features. Certain categories of applicants are exempt from the requirement to give fingerprints, including:

- Children under the age of 12
- Persons for whom fingerprinting is physically impossible
- Heads of State and members of national governments, and members of their official delegations when invited for an official purpose.

The introduction of biometric data is part of the Schengen Visa Information System (VIS). For more information about VIS, fingerprints, data protection and legal background, please see Visa Information System (VIS)

Information regarding the visa sticker

You are responsible for ensuring that the information in the issued sticker is correct. When you receive your sticker, please verify it immediately.

If the sticker contains inaccurate details, inform the Danish Mission or the ESP immediately in order to have it corrected. The Danish Mission will correct the mistake and issue a new sticker without demanding an extra fee.

Applicants should check that all details on the sticker are correct (e.g. name, validity dates, passport number etc.).

In general, you are responsible for ensuring that you meet foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, such as passports and visas (transit, business, tourist, and otherwise), are in order and any other foreign entry requirements are met.

The Danish Mission is not liable for expenses related to e.g. change of flight ticket, new flight ticket, hotel etc. due to inaccurate details in the issued sticker.
