Applications submitted in China but issued in a third country:
It is possible for a person with residence in a third country to hand in an application in China. The decision can then be sent to a Danish mission of choice for issuing. In such cases, the original passport must be presented upon application and can then be handed back by the Danish mission (not the visa center), in order for the applicant to return home.
