Danish Passport

From 1 January 2012 Danish passports will contain digital photographs, fingerprints and signature of the holder. This creates greater security that the passport cannot be misused. Your current passport is still valid until its date of expiry.

Passport applications must be submitted in person at the Royal Danish Embassy, as we are required to obtain biometric data:

  • All Danes above the age of 5 have to provide a digital signature when they apply
  • All Danes above the age of 12 will be fingerprinted.
  • All applicants - regardless of age -  will have their photo taken at the embassy (however, we recommend that you bring a photo for infants and very young children).

Passports for children under 18 years

As of 26 June 2012 everyone must possess a passport of their own when travelling in or out of the country. Thus, children under the age of 15 who are imbedded into the passport of an adult must have a passport of their own, if they are to travel abroad. 

  • Applicant (including infants) and both parents must appear in person at the Danish Embassy to submit the application *. 
  • Application form completed and signed. Both parents must sign on page 3 of the form.
  • The applicant's current passport and a photocopy of the passport bio-data page. 
  • If the applicant is holding a passport issued by another country, bring the current passport and a copy of the passport bio-data page
  • If it is the applicant's first passport, original and copy of the applicant's birth certificate. Both parents should be stated in the certificate.
  • If the applicant is 3 years and below, bring a passport photo showing applicant on a white background, facing front and eyes open. It is generally difficult to take a photo of young children using the Biometric station.
  • Copy of the parent's marriage certificate (only if it is the applicant's first passport, and the applicant was born before 1 July 2014).
  • Copy of both parents' passport bio-data page.

* When children under the age of 18 are applying for a passport, the holder(s) of legal custody must sign the application to declare consent, irrespectively of whether they are physically present at the time of submitting the application, in order for the mission to accept and process the passport application. It is now possible to declare consent online if one of the custody holders is not present, as long as the person who wishes to give consent online has a Danish CPR-number and uses NemID. Please visit the following link UM-CONSENT and follow the instructions.

Processing time


Passports to Danish citizens residing abroad are produced in Denmark and the processing time is between 2-4 weeks. Passport applications should therefore be submitted well before a scheduled journey.

Passport applicants from Hong Kong

Danes wishing to travel to Singapore for the purpose of applying for a Danish Biometric Passport may do so using an EU ETD (emergency travel document issued by an EU representation in Hong Kong).

Stolen passport

If your passport has been lost or stolen you must file a police report and attach a copy to the new passport application.

Your current passport

Your current passport will be cancelled when the new one is handed out at the Embassy. If you hold visa in the old passport make sure you check with the representative of the countries in question, if the visa will still be valid.

Please inform the Singapore authorities when you have collected your new passport. You must have Singpass access and depending on your residence status, you either advise your new passport number to ICA or MOM EP online
