The Traveler must possess a valid passport that is valid for at least a further six months following the end of the tour, as well as the documents necessary for the performance of the tour, including visa and certificate of required vaccinations. It is the traveller’s own duty to investigate and seek to obtain visa and entry permit conditions. The local tour operator can’t be held liable if travellers are rejected upon entry due to lack of visa or entry permit.
Greenland is not a member of Schengen but is only embraced by the Schengen Information System. This means that a Schengen visa does not provide entry to Greenland. When applying for a Danish visa, persons from countries that require a visa must therefore clearly state that the visa must also be valid for Greenland. EU citizens’ national ID cards cannot be used as identification on entry to Greenland. These citizens must have their passport with them.
Scandinavian citizens do not need to have their passport with them. However, they must bring photo ID pursuant to flight security rules. Refer to the Danish Immigration Service’s websitewww.nyidanmark.dk, where you can find more detailed information concerning countries that require a visa, visa rules, etc.
Ways to reach Greenland: You must fly from either Denmark or Iceland. There are no flights from North America or elsewhere in Europe at this stage. Air Greenland and Air Iceland Connect are the two flights that take you to Greenland.
