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 ottambconsular@um.dk 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.

important notice

Please note that neither the Embassy nor our consulates can be held responsible for technical difficulties, human errors or shipping delays in the processing of passports, permits and visa applications.

 

 

It is the applicant’s responsibility to apply in time for the intended departure.

 

 

For passports: 5 weeks prior

For permits: 3 months prior

For visas: A minimum of 18 days prior (15 days of processing plus shipping).

 

 

The processing times may be longer than this during peak travel season (May, June, July, August and December) due to case volume or if cases require further scrutiny.
