Dual Citizenship

01.09.2015  11:39
As of 1 September 2015, Danes will have the opportunity to acquire dual citizenship.

On the 18 December 2014 the Danish parliament passed a bill amending the Nationality Act to allow for full access to multiple citizenships.


The Act will come into force on 1 September 2015 and allow Danes to become citizens in another country without having to give up their Danish citizenship.
Persons who have lost their Danish Citizenship by becoming citizens in another country will have the option to reinstate their Danish citizenship during a 5-year period from 1 September – 31 August 2020.
