Extension of Passport Validity

If you wish to travel while your application for a new passport is being processed, you may apply for an extension of the validity of your current passport.

Requirements for extension of passport validity

  • A passport can be extended only once.
  • Validity of a passport which has expired within the last three months may be extended for the period required and for a period not exceeding one year.
  • An extension of your passport can only be made by turning up in person, either at the Embassy or at the Danish Consulates in Ireland.
  • Bring your passport.
  • Contact the Embassy or Consulate before turning up.


€134 for an extension of validity within the Embassy's office hours. Cash only.

NB. No charge shall be payable for the extension of a passport when an application for a new passport is handed in at the same time within Embassy's opening hours. Only the Embassy - and not the Consulates - can issue a new passport, unless the applicant is a child younger than 12 years of age, in which case an application can be made at the Danish Consulates in Ireland.

Outside office hours

If you require an extension of validity of your passport outside the Embassy's normal opening hours, a fee will be imposed amounting to €316. On Embassy closing days, this fee will be €452.

It is your responsibility to contact the embassy of the country you with to visit, to check if an extension to the validity of a passport is acceptable.
