How to apply for a Danish passport

You can apply for a new Danish passport or a renewal of your existing passport at the Consulate General of Denmark in Silicon Valley. Current processing time is 6-8 weeks.

If you live outside Denmark and have changed your name, you have to make sure that the name change is reflected in the CPR register before you make an appointment. It also applies to passport holders that already have a passport in the new name.

Danish authorities require an official legalised document confirming the change of name from the country where you are residing, in order for you to update your information in the local civil register (Folkeregisteret). Before your passport appointment, you must therefore inform the Danish Civil Register (Folkeregisteret) in the area where you used to live (sidste bopælskommune) either online or fill-in the name-change form and send it by mail to the “bopælskommune” you lived in before leaving Denmark.

You will be able to apply for a passport if your name matches the name registered in the Civil Person Register (CPR).

Passport applications received by mail will not be accepted.

Passports can be picked up at the Consulate General of Denmark in Silicon Valley on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 AM - 03:00 PM (PT) without an appointment.
