Passports for applicants under 18

Every child must have his/her own passport. When applying, the child regardless of age, must be present in person accompanied by his/her parents.
Normal processing time is approximately 3-4 weeks. Passports are issued in Denmark.

Consent Statement
If you want to apply for passports for children, the consent has to be granted by both parents, if they share legal custody, or by the person who has sole custody. If there is only one holder of custody, legalised documentation for this must be presented.

Digital consent for a passport to your child
You can give digital consent for a passport to your child if you have a Danish CPR number and NEM-ID. Your child does not need to have a Danish CPR number.
