FAQ

FAQ

Can I get a new Danish passport during my vacation in Denmark?
Yes. It is possible to get a passport from a municipality in Denmark. All Danish citizens can in principle be issued a passport by contacting a Citizen Service (borgerservice) in any municipality. You do not have to be a resident of the municipality or have any particular connection with it. Search for the nearest center at borger.dk (only in Danish).

Can I have my child enrolled in the passport?
No. Since October 1, 2004, children, including newborns and unnamed children, have to have their own passport. It may be issued by the consulate as an Emergency Passport if you urgently need a passport. See more about Emergency Passports above.

Should children under the age of 12 also submit fingerprints?
No. Fingerprints are not recorded from children under the age of 12, but they must meet in person to apply for a passport. 

Should I meet in person at the embassy to apply for a passport?
Yes, you must always meet in person to submit the passport application.

Declaration of consent
For passport applicants under the age of 18, both guardians with parental shared custody must be present and complete and sign a declaration of consent at the embassy. If one guardian cannot be present, they can also sign at another Danish representation in the world or in a Citizen Service Center (borgerservice) in Denmark. Alternatively, you can also give digital consent with NEM-ID. Once you have given your consent and signed with NEM-ID, you can print a receipt. The receipt will also be sent to your digital mailbox (E-Boks). The consent is valid for 90 days.
