If an adoption has already been completed pursuant to the law of the Philippines but not pursuant to Danish law, the case shall be submitted to the Danish Division of Family Affairs at the National Social Appeals Board  in order to decide whether the adoption can be recognized in Denmark.


Applicants are advised not to enter Denmark with the child until the Division of Family Affairs at the National Social Appeals Board has taken a decision as to whether the foreign adoption can be recognized under Danish law.
