You must normally meet the following basic conditions in order to be granted a visa:
- Your passport or other form of valid travel document must be valid for three months past the visa expiration date. Moreover, the passport or travel document must have been issued within the past 10 years.

- You must have the necessary means to pay for your stay and return trip. What will be considered as necessary funds will be determined by the Danish diplomatic mission and depends on the length of your stay, and whether you will stay at a hotel or with friends or family. As a general rule, you must have at your disposal approx. DKK 350 per day. A smaller amount may be accepted if you are staying in a private home and your host will cover all costs. If you are staying at a hotel, the amount must be greater, approx. DKK 500 per day.

- You must hold a travel insurance policy to cover possible expenses in connection with a return for health reasons or death, indispensable medical treatment or acute hospitalisation during your stay. The insurance policy must cover all Schengen countries, and the minimum policy coverage is €30,000. The insurance policy must be valid for the same period as the visa. The validity of the visa may be shortened if the insurance policy does not cover the entire period.

- You may not be registered as an undesirable in the Schengen Information System (SIS).

- You may not have been deported from Denmark and given an entry ban.

- You may not be listed on UN or EU sanction lists.

These conditions apply at the time your visa is issued, as well as when you enter and stay in the Schengen region.

If you do not meet these conditions, your visa can be confiscated and revoked, in which case you will be required to leave the Schengen region immediately.

When the Immigration Service sends out an invitation form, it has yet to make a decision about whether you can be issued a visa to visit Denmark. In certain cases you, your host or both will be asked to provide further information for the processing of the case. The Immigration Service will communicate with you by writing to the diplomatic mission where you submitted your application. The diplomatic mission will then contact you.

A decision about your visa application will sent to the diplomatic mission. Your host will not normally receive a separate reply. If your host used an online invitation form and you submitted your application at a Danish diplomatic mission, your host will be able to follow the status of the visa case online.

The museum is in the Prince palace next to Frederiksholm canal in Copenhagen. The building once belonged to the crown prince who in 1746 took the throne named Frederik V. The extensive collection of arts, painting, ethnographic exhibits, weapons and antiquities was founded by Frederik III in about 1650. In 1807 the Royal commission was set up to conserve antiquities, and in 1819 in the mansard above the Trinity church the Museum of Northern Antiquities opened. In 1832 the collection was relocated to the bigger premises in Christiansborg. Soon after adopting new constitution in 1849, according to which royal collections were transferred to the state, it was decided to collect all of them in the Prince Palace.

The collections of the National Museum are incredibly rich and widely known. It is in the National Museum that you can see all the treasures (the Trundholm sun chariot, Egtved girl, Golden horns) and at the same time understand and be able to imagine the nature, culture of those people, who were behind these astonishing findings. The collections tell about people living in Denmark over 10 thousand years ago, and give and opportunity to compare the Danish culture with other cultures around the world.

In the museum there are several permanent exhibitions, including the "Ancient Denmark", "Denmark in the Middle Ages and Renaissance", "Danish History from 1660 to 2000", "Ancient Art", "People of the World", "Ethnographic Treasury" and "Children’s museum".
