Denmark opens new visa application centre in Kuwait

Following the launch of the new centre, which has started accepting visa applications for Denmark from Kuwait, applicants will no longer need to visit the Embassy of Denmark. Instead, they can conveniently submit their visa applications with ease at the VFS Global centre in Kuwait City.

During the official inauguration of the centre on January 31, Ole Emil Moesby, ambassador of Denmark to Kuwait, said: “The visa application centre in Kuwait City will facilitate much easier visa application procedures for anyone living in Kuwait who needs a Schengen visa to visit Denmark. Previously, applicants had to travel to Danish missions elsewhere in the region to apply for a visa, which made travel to Denmark somewhat cumbersome, expensive and time-consuming."
"More recently, we’ve noticed that it is not just Denmark that tourists are looking to explore. There has also been a steady increase in tourists interested in visiting Iceland, which is another great travel destination within easy reach of Denmark. It is our aim to provide a hassle-free service to applicants, and with the launch of the new centre in Kuwait City, this is making the travel aspirations of tourists, business travellers, and anyone looking to visit family members in Denmark or Iceland,reality,” he said. 

Commenting on the launch of the new visa application centre, Vinay Malhotra, regional group COO – Middle East, South Asia & China, VFS Global, said: "Denmark is an attractive destination for tourists which has been illustrated through the dynamic growth in the number of people seeking to travel. As a hub for global trade and tourism, Denmark has many drawcards for tourists and business travellers alike and we are pleased to add this great location to our ever-growing list of destinations in Kuwait." "As a preferred outsourced visa-processing provider to governments across the world, we are proud to build on this legacy and will continue to provide convenient services, which open up more of the world to our valued customers,” Malhotra added.

VFS Global has been associated with the Client Government of Denmark since 2008 and presently serves applicants through a vast network of 114 visa application centres across 40 countries such as Australia, Canada, Ecuador, India, New Zealand, Russia and the UAE, amongst others.

Key features of the centre include:

• Access to the Premium Lounge facility with personalised service by dedicated staff
• Extended operating hours enabling visitors to submit applications at their time of convenience
• Doorstep delivery of passports
• SMS notifications on application status 
• Online tracking of application status
• Dedicated website for easy access to end-to-end information including visa categories, requirements, document checklists and applicable fees
• Dedicated contact centre and email support to answer queries and track application status.
