Reconnect with your Danish Roots!

Did you know that you have the right to obtain Danish citizenship if you have Danish ancestors? In this section, we will help you explore your roots and discover if you meet the requirements to become a Danish citizen.

The Danish Citizenship by Descent Act establishes the criteria and requirements for a person to obtain Danish citizenship through his or her ancestry. In general, the criteria for obtaining Danish citizenship by descent are as follows:

  1. Direct descent: The person must be a direct descendant of a Danish father or mother. This may include biological or adopted children.
  2. Genealogy: The person must be able to prove his or her direct relationship to a Danish father or mother. This is usually done through birth certificates, marriage certificates, and other official documents.
  3. Residence and contact with Denmark: In addition to descent, the person must also have a connection to Denmark, such as having lived in the country or having regular contact with Danish culture and society.

It is important to note that specific requirements may vary depending on the individual situation and family circumstances.

Who is Eligible for Danish Citizenship by Descent?

Those who are direct descendants of a Danish father or mother are eligible. This includes biological or adopted children.

It is also essential to have evidence of that relationship, in addition to family members’ documents, such as their birth certificate.

You should also know that a birth certificate from the ancestor is not enough to prove citizenship. At least one passport from the ancestor is also required, and ideally other documents to prove citizenship. With the help of our network of genealogists, we are able to search for documents to prove ancestry.
