RETURN OF PASSPORT

New passports can be returned to you using a prepaid, self-addressed courier envelope or you can have it shipped directly to a consulate near you. If you prefer the latter, make sure that you inform the consular staff of this when submitting your application. Please note that there will be an additional fee for this.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT DANISH CITIZENSHIP

On September 1, 2015, the bill amending the Danish Nationality Act came into force. The bill allows for full access to dual and multiple nationalities. This implies that if you became a Canadian citizen after September 1, 2015, you did not lose your Danish citizenship. However, if you acquired Canadian citizenship before this date, you lost your Danish citizenship. In that situation, you will have to apply for reacquisition of Danish citizenship before you can apply for a new Danish passport.

Dual citizenship is also accepted in other circumstances, such as if persons are born outside of Denmark to at least one Danish parent. For example, children born in Canada to a Danish mother and Canadian father automatically have both Danish and Canadian citizenship. However, in order not to lose their Danish citizenship, these children must apply to retain it before the age of 22.

If you have received a Danish citizenship certificate from the Danish authorities, but are unable to find it, you can apply for Confirmation of Proof – Anmodning om bevisbekræftelse - through the Danish Ministry of Immigration and Integration. The processing time is approximately 6 months starting when the application is received at the ministry. You can find the application form here (in Danish only).
