      Nationality

      “Neither registration in the CPR register as Danish, nor being a previous holder of Danish passport is proof of Danish Citizenship. The Indfødsretsbevis is the only proof of Danish citizenship.”

      Det bliver nemmere at få dansk pas i udlandet

       

       

      Efter indførelsen af biometriske pas 1. januar 2012, er det blevet mere besværligt at få udstedt dansk pas i udlandet. Derfor har Udenrigsministeriet undersøgt mulighederne for, indenfor de nye regler, at gøre det lettere, blandt andet med et mobilt paskontor.

      Indførsel af nye biometriske pas med fingeraftryk pr. 1.1.2012 har gjort det vanskeligere for danskere i udlandet at få udstedt pas, da der er færre steder, hvor man kan ansøge. Udenrigsministeriet har derfor undersøgt mulighederne for at finde praktiske løsninger inden for de nye regler, som kan gøre det lettere at søge pas i udlandet.

       

      Det blev pr. 15. juni 2012 muligt for børn under 12 år (som ikke skal afgive fingeraftryk) at søge om pas på de honorære konsulater og på ambassader uden biometrioptageudstyr. Bemærk, at der skal medbringes to papirbilleder samt at begge forældremyndighedsindehavere skal give samtykke. De fleste honorære konsulater og de ambassader, der ikke har biometrisk udstyr, kan stadig udstede nødpas og forlænge eksisterende pas.

      I visse regioner med behov for udvidet adgang til pasudstedelse på grund af mange danskere i området og store afstande eller andre transportmæssige udfordringer, vil der med regelmæssige mellemrum komme besøg af dansk ambassadepersonale, som medbringer en særlig kuffert med udstyr til at tage fingeraftryk og billeder og modtage pasansøgninger. Nærmere oplysninger om kuffertløsningen kan findes via repræsentationernes hjemmesider.

      Danskere, der bor i udlandet, har mulighed for at søge om pas under ophold i Danmark og det er muligt at få udleveret passet på en række af de danske repræsentationer i udlandet. Der skal betales et gebyr ved udleveringen på 185 kr. (2012 sats). Det anbefales dog fortsat at ansøge i tide til at få passet udleveret, mens man er i Danmark. Fra midt juni 2012 blev det ligeledes muligt at ansøge i udlandet og modtage passet på et af kommunens borgerservice centre i Danmark.

      Der opkræves det samme ansøgningsgebyr uafhængigt af hvor i udlandet der ansøges. For detaljerede oplysninger se din regionale ambassades hjemmeside eller afsnittet om pas på www.um.dk.

      It will get easier to get a Danish passport overseas

       After the introduction of biometric passports on Jan 1 2012, it became more difficult to apply for Danish passports overseas.  Therefore the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been examining the possibilities, within the the new rules, of making it easier to apply, for example with the use of mobile passport offices.

      The introduction of the new biometric passport with fingerprints from Jan 1 2012, made it more difficult for Danes overseas to get new passports, as there were fewer places they could apply. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has therefore examined the possibilities of finding practical solutions, within the rules, which would make it easier to apply overseas.

      On the 15 June 2012 it became possible for children under 12 (who don’t need to give fingerprints) to apply for passports at honorary consulates and Embassies without biometric equipment.  Please note that applicants must bring two passport photos, and both parents will need to give consent.  Most honorary consulates and Embassies without biometric equipment will still be able to issue emergency passports and extend passports.

      In certain regions where there is a need for a greater access to passport issuance, due to a large Danish population, or great distances, or other transportation challenges, the Danish Embassy will regularly send out Embassy staff, who will bring a special suitcase with equipment to capture fingerprints and pictures and accept passport applications.  More information about the mobile passport office can be found on Embassy homepages.

      Danes that live overseas also have the option of applying for Danish passports while at home in Denmark and having the passport sent out to a list of Danish representations worldwide.  There is a fee of 185 DK (set 2012) on delivery of the passport at the representation.  It is still advised however that you apply in good time and get the passport delivered in Denmark. From mid June 2012 it will also be possible to apply overseas and have the passport delivered to a Borgerservice centre in Denmark.

      The same passport application fee is charged throughout the world.   For detailed information see your regional Embassy’s website or see the section on passports at www.um.dk.

      Dual Nationality

       

       

      Dobbelt statsborgerskab

       

       

       

      Er du bosiddende i udlandet, og er du interesseret i at kende mere til de nye regler om dobbelt statsborgerskab?

       

       

       

      I december 2014 vedtog Folketinget nye regler om dobbelt statsborgerskab. Reglerne fremgår af lov nr. 1496 af 23. december 2014 om ændring af lov om dansk indfødsret. Loven er trådt i kraft den 1. september 2015. Hovedelementerne omfatter blandt andet:

       

       

       

      1. Ophævelse af indfødsretslovens bestemmelser om, at erhvervelse af dansk indfødsret er betinget af, at statsborgerskab i andre stater derved mistes og af at dansk indfødsret fortabes ved erhvervelse af et fremmed statsborgerskab

         

         

         

      2. En 5-årig overgangsordning, som giver tidligere danske statsborgere, der har mistet deres danske statsborgerskab i forbindelse med erhvervelse af fremmed statsborgerskab, mulighed for at generhverve det danske statsborgerskab ved afgivelse af erklæring.

       

       

       

      Det nyoprettede Udlændinge-, Integrations- og Boligministerium har nu overtaget ressortansvaret på området fra Justitsministeriet, mens Statsforvaltningen vil stå for den daglige sagsbehandling vedrørende generhvervelse ved erklæring. Du kan læse mere om loven her .

       

       

       

      Hvordan kan du søge om at generhverve dansk statsborgerskab?

       

       

       

      Man kan søge om at generhverve sit danske statsborgerskab ved at indsende en erklæring direkte til Statsforvaltningen - også fra udlandet. Du kan også mod ekstra gebyr indsende erklæringen via en dansk ambassade eller et af de mange danske konsulater i udlandet. Du kan se de danske repræsentationer her . På Statsforvaltningens hjemmeside er der information og vejledning om de nærmere regler.

       

       

       

      Hvordan får jeg et dansk pas?

       

       

       

      Du vil kunne søge om et dansk pas, når Statsforvaltningen har behandlet din sag og afgjort, at du har generhvervet dit danske statsborgerskab. For personer over 12 år skal passet indeholde biometri (fingreaftryk og billede i en chip). Du kan se den seneste liste over, hvor du kan søge om et dansk pas med biometri her . Husk at du som hovedregel skal bestille tid for at kunne indgive din pasansøgning.

      Dual Nationality

      Do you live overseas or are you interested in knowing more about the rules regarding dual nationality?

      In December 2014 the Danish parliament passes new rules regarding dual nationality. The rules consist of law number 1496 9f 23rd December 2014 regarding a change in the rules about Danish citizenship.  The law was enacted on Sept 1 2015.  The main points consist of the following.

      1. That acquiring Danish citizenship will no longer require a person to give up their previous nationality, and that the acquiring of another nationality will no longer require a person to give up their Danish nationality.
      2. A 5 year period of grace where former Danish citizens who previously lost their Danish nationality on obtaining another nationality, will be able to regain their Danish citizenship by means of a declaration.

      The newly created Immigration and Housing ministry has now taken over ressource responsibility from the Ministry of Justice while the State Administration will handle the day-to-day processing of the citizenship recovery by declaration.  You can read more about the law here(missing link)

      How can you apply to regain your Danish citizenship?

      You can apply to regain your Danish citizenship by sending a declaration direct to the State Administration – also from overseas.  For an extra fee you can also send the declaration via a Danish Embassy or one of the many Danish consulates overseas. You can see a list of the Danish representations here (missing link).  The State Administration homepage(missing link) has information and guidance about the specific rules.

      How do I get a Danish passport?

      Du kan apply for a Danish passport once the State administration has handled your case and made a decision that you have regained your citizenship.  People over the age of 12 must have a passport with biometric information (fingerprints and picture in a chip). You can see the latest list on where you can apply for a biometric passport here (missing link). Please remember that usually you will need to book an appointment to hand in your passport application.
