Crime and security
The criminality rate in Denmark is low. Travellers need to observe the common security measures.
The Danish legislation stipulates that any foreign citizen intending to have a long-term stay in Denmark and use an automobile, has to re-register the vehicle and use Danish registration plates. Two-week time is provided for such re-registration.
More information as well as the relevant form and telephone number for any queries, is available at the webpage of the Danish Tax Authorities (SKAT), HERE.
Information regarding goods and cash as well as quantities that are permitted to be brought in/out of the country is available at the website of Bulgarian Customs Agency, HERE.

Travel papers and visas

A visa-free regime of a maximum 90 days stay for each 6 (six) months is in force. Travellers need to prove that they possess sufficient funds for the duration of their stay in Denmark.
As EU citizens, Bulgarian citizens may stay in Denmark for a period of three months. Should such citizens be looking for a job, they may stay for up to six months in the country.

Certifications and legalisations
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark is legalizing documents by placing an “Apostille’. More information is available HERE. Such documents are then translated into Bulgarian by a translator registered with the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and appointed at the Embassy in Copenhagen. Translations are then certified by the Consular office.
Identity documents issuance
Bulgarian Embassy in Denmark is accepting applications for issuing passports, identity cards and temporary passports since it operates a biometric recording equipment (fingerprints and iris image).
