Visa for Iceland / Schengen Visa
Iceland is a part of the Schengen Agreement; this for instance secures unrestricted passage for individuals within the Schengen area. Those who enter the Schengen area go through passport control in the first country they arrive in, and then there is no further inspection. It can therefore be said that when a visa is issued for a trip to Iceland, the visa is not issued exclusively for Iceland as it gives access to all other Schengen countries.
In India, the Embassy of Denmark handles visa applications for Iceland through the VFS Global in New Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bengaluru. Information on visas and applications can be found on the websites of the Danish Embassy.
Information on where to apply for visas in other countries within the Embassy’s jurisdiction can be found on the website of the Icelandic Directorate of Immigration.
