The visa policy of Greenland covers the types and issuance of visas of Greenland.

Greenland (Kalaallit Nunaat) is a constituent country (Danish: land) of the Kingdom of Denmark. It is not part of the Schengen Area, and Schengen visa or resident permits issued by Schengen area countries are not valid for visiting Greenland. The territory maintains an open border with the Schengen Area and so arrivals from the Schengen Area are not subject to border checks. A special visa for Greenland can be obtained in consular establishments of the Kingdom of Denmark. The conditions are similar to the conditions for the Danish visa. Greenlandic visas are not valid for visiting Denmark.[1]

Nordic citizens can enter with a passport or national ID card (or, when arriving from a Nordic country, any photo identification) for any duration and purpose. Citizens of other countries require a passport.[1]
