Supporting documents

Common list of supporting documents

The visa issuing Schengen representations in Australia have recently agreed on a common list of supporting documentation to be submitted by applicants for short stay visas in Australia. The list has been approved by the European Commission and a copy of the Commission Implementing Decision of 30 August 2017 C(2017) 5853 establishing the list of supporting documents can be downloaded here.

This means that regardless of which Schengen state an application is submitted with, the basic requirements for documentation are the same.

The common list of supporting documents for applicants in Australia (Annex 1) can be downloaded here.

To make it easy for the applicants, the Danish Consulate General has also created individual printable checklists categorised by the main purpose of travel - please see below.

Missing documentation

If any of the required documentation is not submitted with the application, a request for this documentation will be sent to the applicant. Also the visa officer may request additional documentation. A deadline for submitting the documentation will be stipulated in the request. If the documents are not presented within the given deadline, the application may be refused on the basis of missing documentation.

Original documents

Supporting documents must be enclosed in original along with a colour copy of the document for scanning purposes. All original documents will be returned to the applicant when the processing has been completed. 

Checklists

PLEASE NOTE: Supporting documents do not constitute a visa application on their own. You must also meet the requirements listed under 'HOW to lodge a visa application'
