Schengen Agreement

Denmark is a participant in the Schengen cooperation which means that people are able to move freely between the countries that are members of Schengen. Schengen also means increased cooperation in fighting international crime and cooperation at the external borders. Schengen cooperation can affect you in several ways – chiefly if you are going to travel.

Under the Schengen Agreement the following countries have opened their borders to one another:
Austria
Belgium
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Italy
Latvia
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta
the Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain
Sweden
A visa issued for a visit to one of these countries is normally valid in all of the other countries as well. Only in exceptional cases can a person be granted a visa that is valid in one country only. The Schengen countries normally decide cooperatively which nationalities the visa requirement will be applied to. The countries are selected with consideration to immigration and security issues, as well as political concerns.
Please refer to this list of nationals who do need a visa to visit Denmark.

If you have been granted certain types of residence or re-entry permits in another Schengen country, you do not need a visa to enter Denmark or another Schengen country residence permits issued by another Schengen country. For more information visit  Residence permit by another Schengen country
 
If you hold a residence card issued under the EU regulations on free movement, you do not need a visa to enter Denmark. This applies to both residence cards issued in accordance with Directive 2004/38/EC and residence cards issued before this directive took effect. This can be either a credit card size plastic card or a residence sticker in your passport.
