If your Danish passport has expired or you have lost your passport and are about to travel, you have several options getting a valid passport.
Please note: If you are not a Danish citizen, you must contact your country’s embassy or consulate. If this is not possible, please contact Udlændingeservice (the Danish Immigration Service).
Extend the validity of your Danish passport
It is possible to extend the validity of a passport within three months from the expiration date. You must visit Borgerservice (Citizen Service) or Borgerservice KVIK (Citizen Service Quick) - remember to bring your passport. See the contact information below.
Children under the age of 18 who need to extend the validity of their passports must visit Borgerservice or Borgerservice KVIK in person and the parent(s) who have custody must give her/his/their consent to the extension. You can consent by proxy. The application form may be used as proxy. The extension is free of charge and can only be made once.
