Travel visas

Citizens from the Nordic countries and EU/EAA countries are permitted to enter the Faroe Islands without a visa and can stay for up to 3 months.

Citizens from other countries may need a visa to visit the Faroes for the purpose of business, personal visits and tourism. Find out if you need to apply for a visa here.

Applying for a visa

You can apply for a visa to the Faroes at a Danish Embassy or Consulate in your country of residence. The Danish Immigration Service has more information about how to apply here.

It is worth noting that, although visa applications to the Faroes are under Danish jurisdiction, a visa to enter Denmark does not give the holder the right to enter the Faroes, and vice versa. The visa must be explicitly specified for the Faroes or Denmark.
