Entry to Denmark
Denmark is a member of the European Union, and travel to and from Denmark is governed by EU law. Therefore, different entry requirements may apply depending on where you're travelling from, and what your nationality is.
EU citizens can travel freely to Denmark; citizens of other countries may require a visa. If you travel to Denmark from outside the Schengen agreement area, you may also require a visa. See here if you are from a country where you will need a visa to enter Denmark.
