The Travelling Biometric Suitcase

The Danish biometric passport was introduced on January 1st 2012. In addition to the regular document requirements, applicants also have a digital photo taken, as well as fingerprints and a digital signature.

Due to the requirements of having biometric equipment on site, the amount of locations where applications can be launched are limited. In an effort to reach as many Danish citizens as possible, the Embassy travels to various regions of Canada with a mobile biometric unit.

Please see a tentative schedule below for upcoming travel plans as well as previous trips that have been completed.

If you are interested in booking an appointment for any of the upcoming trips, please send an email to [email protected] with "Biometric passport trip" in the subject and include your name, phone number, email address and which trip you would like to book an appointment for. You will then be contacted once the travel dates are finalized and you will be booked for a specific time and date.
