Australia and New Zealand
The Danish Consulate General in Sydney issues visas for Denmark and Iceland from applicants in Australia and New Zealand.
Denmark and Iceland are both Schengen countries (member states of the Schengen region in Europe) and therefore visas for these countries are so-called Schengen visas.
A Schengen visa is only intended to allow a foreign national to visit Denmark, Iceland and/or the other Schengen countries for a limited period of time. A Schengen visa is strictly a visitor's visa and does not give the holder the right to reside or work in Denmark, Iceland or any other Schengen country.
The issuance of a Schengen visa is discretionary and depends on examination of each individual application, including purpose of visit and intention to return to country of residence.

In Fiji it is France that represents Denmark in all matters concerning Schengen visas for Denmark. Applications for Schengen visas for Denmark should therefore be lodged with the Embassy of France in Suva. All enquiries about Schengen visas for Denmark should also be addressed to the Embassy of France.
Cook Island, Nauru, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu
Cook Island, Nauru, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu also falls under the jurisdiction of the Danish Consulate General in Sydney in regards to the issuance of Schengen visas for Denmark. As of May 2015 citizens of Samoa and Vanuatu are visa free and therefore do not require a Schengen visa any longer. Applicants from Cook Island, Nauru, Tonga and Tuvalu must however apply in person either at a VFS Global office in Australia or New Zealand OR at the Embassy of France in Suva, Fiji.
