Once the application has been approved, an authorization for a long-term visa (D-visa) will be sent by the Icelandic authorities to the consular office at the Danish Embassy in Pretoria, who will then issue the visa.

In order for us to issue the visa, you must submit your passport, online payment receipt (see below) and a photo to us either in person or by courier. It may take up to 3 working days for us to issue the visa.
