Passports for Persons Under the Age of 18

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. Therefore, from 1 January 2012 the Danish Honorary Consulate will no longer accept applications for ordinary passports, except for children up to 12 years.

  • The waiting time for an appointment at the Embassy regardless of the nature of your inquiry is approximately 1 week.  
  • In order to apply for a new passport or to apply for a renewal of passport, you will first need to have an appointment with the Embassy. You can book an appointment with the Embassy by e-mail at isbamb@um.dk.
  • If you unable to keep your appointment, please inform the Embassy as soon as possible. 
  • In the event you wish to obtain an emergency passport because your existing passport has been stolen or damaged, and you wish to travel before the issuance of your new passport, you must book an appointment with the Embassy. 
  • Collection of passports at the Embassy according to appointment takes place from Monday to Thursday between 9.00 a.m. and 12.00 p.m.. Please bring your old passport, which the Embassy Staff will cancel when they issue your new passport.
