Passport and Visa requirements

Information about passport and visa rules, important to know before your trip


Citizens from Nordic countries

Nordic citizens must be able to present valid picture identification at check-in, at the security check, and before boarding the aircraft. Valid picture identification is, for example, a passport or a driving license. We recommend that you bring your passport. Citizens from the Nordic countries do not need a visa to travel to Greenland.

EU citizens

Travelers from other EU countries besides the Nordic countries must be able to present passports. Visas are not required for trips to Greenland.

Nationals from other countries

If you come from a country from which a visa is required to enter Denmark, a visa is also required to travel to Greenland. Please note that a visa must be sought separately for Greenland. A visa for Denmark does not automatically entail a visa to Greenland. Ask the Immigration Service for advice if you have any doubts about which rules apply to you. You can read more here.

If you travel without a valid visa, you can be refused to board. In this case, Greenland Travel and the airline are not responsible for your further trip, neither physically or economically.

On the webpage www.nyidanmark.dk you can see a list of the nationalities that require a visa to travel to Greenland.

Always remember to bring valid photo identification so that you can identify yourself on your trip.


Iceland is in Schengen, so you just need to bring picture identification on your trip if you are a citizen of one of the Nordic countries. However, we recommend that you bring your passport as documentation.

Further visa information can be found at the Icelandic Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
