Emergency Passports

An emergency passport is a handwritten document, which may be issued either at the Embassy or at one of the Danish consulates in Ireland.

You may apply for an emergency passport while your application for a new passport is still in process or if the validity of your current passport cannot be extended.

If you live in Ireland you must apply for a new Danish passport in addition to the emergency passport. From the 1st of January 2012 only the Embassy can issue new passports, unless the applicant is a child younger than 12 years of age, in which case a passport may be applied for at the Danish Consulates in Ireland.

The passport applicant must apply in person and must bring:

  1. A completed and signed passport application form.
  2. 2 up-to-date passport photos.
  3. Photo ID if possible.

If the passport is lost, further requirements are necessary:

If you have lost your Danish passport, you must bring with you a police report, when you apply for an emergency passport/replacement passport. 

Furthermore a declaration must be filled in at the Embassy stating the circumstances under which the passport was lost/stolen.

If you have obtained danish nationality after you were born, you must bring your certificate of Danish nationality.

Fees

€129 for an emergency passport within office hours.

NB. No charge shall be payable for an emergency passport issued, if an application for a new passport is made at the same time, and within embassy opening hours. Only the Embassy - and not the Consulates - can issue a new passport, unless the applicant is a child younger that 12 years of age, in which case passport can be applied for at the Danish Consulates in Ireland.

Outside office hours

If you require an emergency passport outside the Embassy's normal opening hours, a fee of €525 will be charged. On days, when the Embassy is closed, this fee will be €750.

It is your responsibility to contact the embassy of the country you wish to visit, in order to check if an emergency passport is acceptable.
