The Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing announced it will open five new Visa Application Centres in cities including Chengdu, Hangzhou, Jinan, Nanjing and Shenyang in a press release today.
This is in an effort to make visa applications easier for Chinese citizens who live outside of Beijing, Chongqing, Guangzhou and Shanghai.
The five new centers are expected to start accepting visa applications before the summer peak season of this year.
The embassy says that interest in Denmark as a travel destination has become stronger than ever amongst Chinese tour operators, as they have met with 60 Chinese travel agents coming to learn more about the latest visa information for Denmark and Greenland late last week.
The Royal Danish Embassy is also seeing a steady increase in the number of Chinese visa applicants going to Denmark and other Schengen countries.
In 2015, 28,000 visas were issued to travelers by Danish representatives in China, registering an increase of nearly 20 percent, or 5,500 issuances, from the previous year.
