How to apply for or renew your biometric Danish passport online?
You must submit the passport application in person (regardless of age) at a Danish mission or at any ‘Borgerservicecenter’ at a municipality in Denmark.
Please be advised that it is a condition when applying for any Danish passport, that you are either registered as a Danish citizen in the CPR, or if you do not have a Danish CPR number, that you can provide proof of your Danish nationality by submitting relevant documentation. If you are registered with another nationality, you will not be able to apply for a new passport and will have to contact the “Folkeregister” in the municipality where you lived last or where the registration took place. If in doubt about how you are registered, please contact the “Folkeregister” here.
The mission will take a digital photograph and collect fingerprints as well as a digital signature. All of these will be used in your new biometric passport.
Adult passports are valid for 10 years.
