You may find the fee schedule here. Please bring exact amount.


Please note that while the Danish passport (issued to individuals born abroad) is considered a valid travel document, it does not automatically confirm the person’s Danish nationality. In principle, individuals born outside of Denmark to Danish parent/s and who have never resided in Denmark forfeit their Danish nationality when they turn 22 years of age, unless they have applied before their 22nd birthday to the Ministry of Immigration and Integration for retention of Danish nationality. Please refer to the Ministry’s website for more information:
