Passports for Children (under 18 years)
How to apply for your child’s first Danish passport or renew the biometric passport?
It is no longer possible for children to travel on their parents’ passport.
Children under the age of 12 can apply for a new passport either at a Danish mission, an affiliated consulate general/consulate/vice-Consulate, or at any ‘Borgerservicecenter’ in Denmark.
Both parents must submit your child’s application in person together with your child.
Please bring a passport photo for babies and very young children that meets the Requirements for passport photos. Fingerprints are collected from children from the age of 12 and a digital signature from the age of 5.
Passports for children aged 0-2 are valid for 2 years
Passports for children aged 2-18 are valid for 5 years
Please be advised that it is a condition when applying for any Danish passport, that your child is either registered as a Danish citizens in the CPR, or if he/she does not have a Danish CPR number, that you can provide proof of his/her Danish nationality by submitting relevant documentation. If he/she is registered with another nationality, you will not be able to apply for a new passport and will have to contact the National Register (Folkeregisteret) in the municipality where you last lived or where the registration/christening took place. Please note that a CPR number is not a requirement and it is still possible to apply for a passport without one.
Which documentation is required?
- One ‘Application Form’ per child completed and signed on page 2 by a parent. Please download the ‘Application Form’ here
- On page 3, both parents must sign the ‘Declaration of Consent’. Please see below for further information
- Your child’s current passport or latest, if any
- First time applications only: if you have never held a Danish passport before or if your latest passport expired more than 2 years ago:
Original Birth Certificates from the hospital and the relevant authorities – both parents’ names must appear on the Certificates – Copy of parents’ Marriage Certificate if you were born before 1.7.2014 and your father was Danish. Please note that some documents may need to be legalised: Legalisation (Apostille)
Your Certificate of Danish Nationality, if you have been issued one (Statsborgerretsbevis/Indfødsretsbevis). This certificate is for individuals born outside of Denmark or for those who did not acquire Danish Nationality at birth.
- Original documentation of the name change if the child has changed his/her name after issuance of the current passport.
- For information about specific documentation required in the country that you are applying from, please see left hand column “Practical information” (at embassy website).
Please note that the Danish mission has the right to ask for further ID, documents or parental consent, if necessary. If requested to provide further information or documents, you must make sure that the embassy receives this within 30 days of the date of application, as the application information will be cancelled automatically in the passport system after this period. A new application will then have to be made and the fee paid again.
How do I give consent?
According to Danish law, both parents must give their consent every time they apply for a Danish passport for their child until he/she reaches the age of 18, unless one parent has acquired sole custody/parental responsibility.
If you have sole custody/parental responsibility, documentation to this effect must be presented together with the passport application.
If the other parent does not live in the country where you are applying from, consent may be given at any other Danish mission or affiliated consulate that is more convenient for the absent parent.
If the other parent lives in Denmark, consent may be given at any Danish municipality that is more convenient for the absent parent.
Furthermore, digital consent can be given if the absent parent has Nem-ID. Visit https://dys.um.dk/form/ and fill in the relevant consent. If you are giving consent for more than one child, the process must be completed for each child that is applying for a Danish passport.
What does it cost?
The fee for a child passport is currently DKK 995.
The fee is payable upon application directly to the Danish embassy.
My child has lost the Danish passport – what do I do?
If your child’s current passport has been lost/stolen, please see further information under Passport Extensions and Emergency Passports.
How long does it take to process?
All passports are issued in Denmark, and it therefore, takes approximately 3-5 weeks before you can pick up your new passport at the mission or at a nearby consulate. For further information, please see the left hand column under “Practical information” (at embassy website).
How and where can I pick up my child’s new passport?
When your child’s new passport has arrived, the Danish mission or the consulate will notify you directly. After the notification, please contact the mission/consulate to schedule an appointment in order to collect the passport.
Please remember to bring the old passport for cancellation and kindly inform the Danish mission of any valid visas or residence permits in the old passport in order for them not to be cancelled.
