NATIONALITY: Please be advised that if you have a Danish CPR-number and are therefore registered in the CPR-Register, you must be registered as a Danish citizen.  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 prior to leaving Denmark or where the registration took place.

NAME CHANGE: If you have changed your name (for example due to marriage) and never notified the “Folkeregister” your passport will be issued according to the information listed in the “Folkeregister”.

If in doubt about how you are registered, please contact the “Folkeregister” here.

EXTENSION: Extension of an expired passport is only possible if the expiration date is three months or less. A passport can only be extended once and for a maximum of 12 months.

If you cannot pick-up your passport, the passport will be sent to your home or business address - at your own risk - via Federal Express. In this case an additional fee will be charged by credit card or money order.
