Information about travel and residence

On the following pages you will find information concerning traveling and residence in Denmark. This section also provides information relating to the types of consular services the embassy offers.

As a general rule, the Danish Foreign Service, which includes Danish representations abroad, will assist all Danish nationals and – in as far as possible – foreigners with a permanent address in Denmark. However, persons not holding Danish citizenship or holding dual nationality cannot be certain that the authorities of the country in question will accept that Denmark offer assistance, if the case in question is a conflict with the authorities of that country – e.g. cases of imprisonment.

Consular services includes issuing Danish passports, Danish driving licences, legalisations and assistance in connection with illness and death, money transfers, imprisonment, child abduction cases, etc.

A fee is applicable to most services offered by the Consular Section.

The Danish Foreign Service is not empowered to grant funds in cases where Danish nationals and foreign nationals with a permanent address in Denmark are in need while travelling abroad. This applies whether it concerns requests to borrow money for a ticket back to Denmark, payment of hospital bills, medical evacuation to Denmark, legal costs etc.
