Passports for Adults

Biometric passports On 1 January 2012, Denmark introduced biometric passports. For passport applicants in Pakistan, this means that ordinary passports can now only be issued at the Danish Embassy in Islamabad. From 1 January 2012, Danish honorary consulates will no longer accept applications for ordinary passports.

Please note the following:

  • The waiting time for an appointment is currently approx. 1 week.  
  • You will need an appointment with the Embassy prior visit, to apply for a new/renew a passport. 
  • If you are not able to meet your appointment please let the Embassy know so that the appointment can be given to another applicant. 
  • If you require an emergency passport  because your existing passport has been lost, stolen or damaged and you are travelling before you receive your new passport, you will need to book appointment. 
  • Collection of passports is between 9.00-12.00 Monday-Thursday and appointment must be booked prior to visit. Your old passport will be cancelled by the Embassy.

Please note that school holidays and the summer period are very busy and will therefore be booked up quickly. You should therefore book your appointment in good time if you wish to come to the Embassy during school holidays.

The Embassy will take a digital photograph and collect 2 fingerprints (index fingers) and a digital signature. These will be used for your new biometric passport.

Processing times

Passports are issued in Denmark and take approximately 4 weeks to process, 5-6 weeks during peak periods.
