Immigrant Visas

Immigrant visas to the United States are processed for citizens and residents of Denmark at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm. You can view information on their phased resumption of immigrant visa services here: https://se.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/

The U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen offers a very limited range of immigrant visa and lawful permanent resident (LPR) services. We have begun a phased resumption of services and offer limited appointments to process: I-131A “Application for Travel Document” forms (boarding foils for lost/stolen/mutilated LPR cards); I-130 forms (only petitions for dependents of military personnel); and limited re-entry permit pick-ups.

We are not accepting DS-117 forms (the “Application to Determine Returning Resident Status”). Please visit the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm’s website for information about SB-1 visa appointments.

To apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen seeking to immigrate generally must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative(s), or prospective U.S. employer, and have an approved petition before applying for an immigrant visa. The sponsor begins the process by filing a petition on the foreign citizen’s behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You may wish to review our Directory of Visa Categories on usvisas.state.gov to learn about the different types of immigrant visas to the United States, including our Diversity Visa Program. Then, follow the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process, or on the Diversity Visa Process, on usvisas.state.gov to begin applying for an immigrant visa.

Once USCIS has approved your petition and you have completed pre-processing with the National Visa Center (NVC), or if you have been selected in the Diversity Visa Lottery and completed processing with the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC), review the instructions given to you by the NVC or the KCC, along with the information presented on this website, for further guidance and instructions.

The U.S. Embassy Denmark Visa section does not process Immigrant Visas. All Immigrant Visa petitions submitted for residents of Denmark are processed through U.S. Embassy Sweden in Stockholm.
