Travel papers and visas

As part of the Schengen area, Denmark applies common rules on the movement of people. Bulgarian citizens, as EU citizens, are required to have a valid travel document (identity card or passport) for the duration of their stay in Denmark.

Bulgarian citizens can enter and reside freely in Denmark for three months. If the purpose of their stay is to find work and settle more permanently, they can stay in the country for up to six months, as long as it can be documented that they are in the process of looking for work and there is a possibility of their being hired. A registration certificate for EU/EEA nationals is required if you stay in Denmark for more than three (or six) months. More information can be found HERE.

Greenland and the Faroe Islands, which are part of the Kingdom of Denmark, are not part of the EU or the Schengen area. EU citizens, including Bulgarian citizens, do not need a visa for short-term visits of up to 90 days within 180 days (the right to a short stay does not automatically include the right to participate in special expeditions to certain parts of Greenland - for more information:  http://naalakkersuisut.gl/en/About-government-of-greenland/Travel-activities-in-remote-parts-of-Greenland). Applications for long-term residence in Greenland and the Faroe Islands are processed by the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration: (https://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/contact/contact-dalrir/contact-dalrir.htm).

Requirements for children up to 18 years of age (accompanied and unaccompanied):
No special documents, declarations, etc. are required for children (minors and under-aged persons) - citizens of EU countries travelling alone or accompanied by an adult, except a valid passport/identity card.

A decision of the Government of Denmark introduces temporary border controls at the border with Sweden for an initial period of six (6) months as from 12 November 2019. Border controls will take the form of periodic checks on those travelling on the land and rail link to Sweden via the bridge/tunnel across the Öresund Strait and via the ferry lines Greeno-Warberg, Elsinore-Helsingborg, Frederikshavn-Gothenburg and René (Bornholm)-Istad. Checks will be carried out at set intervals between once or twice a week at each of the crossing points.

Inland border controls temporarily introduced by Denmark at the border with Germany (at Danish ports with ferry connections to Germany and at the Danish-German land border) remain in force for a further six (6) months from 12 November 2019.

When crossing internal borders between Sweden and Denmark and between Germany and Denmark, EU nationals must carry a valid identity card or passport.
