Other important information

Passport photo

It will not be necessary to bring a passport photo with the application, as the photo will be taken at the consulate on the day.

Name change

For rules on name changes in Danish passports, please see our page about name change.

Turn-around time

Since all passports are manufactured in Denmark please allow 3-6 weeks for processing. Applications for passports should therefore be submitted well in advance of your planned travel. (Please note passport applications submitted during a biometric suitcase visit takes 4-6 weeks to be issued).

Fees

Please view the page consular fees.

Please note that the Embassy in Canberra only accepts cash, cheque or money order. The Consulate General in Sydney only accept EFTPOS cards connected to a savings or cheque account as approved means of payment. Cash, cheques and money orders are not accepted as a form of payment. Credit Cards will only be accepted exceptionally in cases where the costumer is a Danish citizen travelling through Australia and not in possession of a Australian EFTPOS card.    

Lost or stolen passport

If the old passport has been lost or stolen this must be reported to the police and a copy of the police report together with the Declaration of the Missing Passport must be enclosed with the application. You find the Declaration here (In Danish only).

Receiving the new passport

The new passport can either be collected at the passport issuing mission where the application was handed in, or it can be posted to the applicant without further fees. For security reasons the passport can only be posted by registered post - the applicant has to sign on delivery when receiving the letter.
The new passport can also be posted to a different Danish mission overseas eg. to the nearest honorary consulate where the passport then can be collected. Please be aware that the honorary consulate in this case will have to charge a fee for handing over the passport according to Prod no 135 in The Executive Order on Payment for Services provided by the Danish Foreign Service.

The old passport

The old passport has to be cancelled before the new one can be handed over. If the applicant wishes to keep the old passport after it has been cancelled the applicant has the following options:

  • The old passport gets handed in together with the application. When the new passport arrives the old passport will be cancelled and handed over/posted together with the new passport
  • If the applicant needs the old passport before the new one has been issued the applicant can forward the old passport to the passport issuing authority where the application was handed in.
  • When handing over the new passport at the nearest honorary consulate, the consulate will at the same time cancel the old passport. Please be aware that the honorary consulate in this case will have to charge a fee for handing over the passport according to Prod no 135 in The Executive Order on Payment for Services provided by the Danish Foreign Service.

Please note that neither the Honorary Consulates nor the Danish Consulate General in Sydney accepts any liability for loss of passport in the mail.

Extension of passport

If a passport is about to expire or has expired within the last 3 months, the Embassy in Canberra, the Consulate General in Sydney as well any of the Honorary Consulates are able to extend the passport. The extension will be given for the proposed travel and maximum for 1 year. Fees for extension: Product no 104 in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs list of fees.
