Whether you want to apply for a passport for the first time or renew your passport please read the information below to find out if you are eligible for a Danish passport.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT DANISH CITIZENSHIP It is a fundamental principle of Danish legislation that dual nationality must be restricted as much as possible. Dual nationality is, accepted in certain circumstances, such as if persons are born with dual nationality. For example children born in Canada or the US to Danish parents also acquire Canadian or US nationality at birth on the basis of the so-called “territorial principle”.Please note that a child born in Canada to a Danish parent may acquire both Canadian and Danish citizenship. In order not to lose Danish citizenship an application must be made between the child’s 21st and 22nd birthdays.
