DFC recommends that the fellow initially arrives alone and familiarizes him- /herself with the conditions in Denmark, before possible visitors arrive. DFC does not recommend that fellows on our shorter learning programmes (less than 6 weeks) receive visits from abroad.
During longer stays in Denmark, visitors are welcome, provided that they pay for and arrange everything in connection with the visit: Air ticket, insurance, visa and accommodation.
Please note that it is not possible for your child(ren) below the age of 18 to be with you during your study stay in Denmark. The accommodation at the Danida Fellowship Centre Hostel is not well suited for young children, and there are no child-care arrangements in the Danida Fellowship Centre programme.
Also, please note that a partner/close relative visit cannot exceed one month in the Danida Fellowship Centre Hostel, and that you have to inform Danida Fellowship Centre about the visit.
Other visitors may stay with you for a maximum of one week at the Danida Fellowship Centre Hostel. Please note that this only applies for a single adult visitor, and not for children.
If you are staying at a hotel – you may be able to make an arrangement directly with the hotel upon extra payment. Note that this will be at your own expense.
In Copenhagen, the accommodation will either be at Danida Fellowship Centre’s own hostel at Hostrupsvej (68 one-roomed self-contained flats), or at a hotel.
- Danida Fellowship Centre Hostel – the rooms are one room flats with a single bed/bedding. Danida Fellowship Centre does not provide extra bedding for visitors.
- Hotels – you may be able to make an arrangement with the hotel upon extra payment. Note that this will be at your own expense and the agreement should be kept apart from the pre-arranged DFC agreement already made.
For fellows who will stay outside of Copenhagen, other types of accommodation may be made available to our fellows.
