Danish Citizenship

 

Danish citizens born abroad who wish to remain Danish citizens after the age of 22, need to apply for retention of their Danish citizenship before their 22nd birthday. Please note that applicants born in Israel must submit their applications after their 21st birthday, but before their 22nd birthday.

Applications are submitted either directly to the Nationality Division of the Danish Ministry of Immigration and Integration (Indfødsretskontoret), or via a Danish representation abroad. Please note that there are extra fees involved when applying via the Embassy.

To read more about how to apply for retention of Danish citizenship, please read more on the website of the Danish Ministry of Immigration and Integration (Udlændinge- og Integrationsministeriet). This information is only available in Danish.

For other matters regarding Danish nationality, please consult the webpage of the Danish Ministry of Immigration and Integration (only in Danish).
