C. OTHER COUNTRIES

Visitors from countries outside the EU and Schengen area must usually hold a passport valid for at least three months beyond the planned stay in the Faroe Islands. Depending on the nationality, a visa may also be required. The nationalities requiring a visa for entering the Faroe Islands is the same as for Denmark and can be seen here.

The Faroe Islands are NOT part of the Schengen Area. Consequently, people cannot enter the Faroe Islands based on their Schengen visas or Danish visa. When a visa is applied for at the Danish Embassy, it must be specifically for the Faroe Islands.

The conditions for obtaining a visa for the Faroe Islands are similar to the conditions for obtaining a visa for Denmark.

A visa for Denmark does not give the holder the right to enter the Faroe Islands unless it is stated in the visa, just as a visa for the Faroe Islands does not give the holder the right to enter Denmark if it is not stated in the visa.

Visa is required for entering the Faroe Islands regardless of whether the person has a residence permit in Denmark. Correspondingly, a visa is required when entering Denmark, even though the person has a residence permit in the Faroe Islands.

Further information for foreigners living in Denmark, who wish to visit the Faroe Islands, can be found here.

If in doubt, contact the airline, ferry, or cruise company you are arriving with.
