With regard to individuals on SCHENGEN visa/resident permit who have overstayed in Denmark due to COVID-19, Danish Foreign Ministry has informed the following:-

Due to COVID-19 epidemic, a new procedure has been introduced at the Danish borders for individuals on a SCHENGEN visa/residence permit who have overstayed due to COVID-19.

On departure from Denmark, the Danish Police at the border will assess if a person’s overstay is due to COVID-19. If that is the case, the Danish Police will issue a letter to the person confirming that the date of departure from Denmark has been postponed with 60 days.
