Danish Dual citizenship

On the 1st September, 2015 Danish law changed and we are now able to retain or acquire another citizenship while also holding a Danish.

Broadly speaking if you were born with Danish citizenship, and then later gave it up or lost it, when getting a citizenship in Australia or anywhere outside Denmark, from the 1st of Sept, 2015 till 1st Sept, 2020 you are able to regain the Danish.

Also a Danish citizen can now acquire Australian citizenship while holding on to your Danish also, there is no time limit in this circumstance and you do NOT need to inform Denmark.

If you are Danish but born outside Denmark, you are still required BEFORE your 22nd birthday, to apply to retain Danish citizenceship. This applies even if you now live in Denmark, minimum stay and other conditions apply!
Mere information fåes ved Udlændinge og Integrationsministeriet.


Danish Facebook users have for some time now exchanged information and helped others find old friends, family or just an old school mate, and you too can join this group AND others!

First of course you do need to be on Facebook, but then all you need to get started look for the Facebook group:
"Søg efter den du ikke har set i mange år"
Being a Danish group you likely will have best results if you post in Danish.

Over the time I have been following the group we have had a few looking for Danes here in Australia, and some with good results.
But mostly it is old school friends or or play mates from childhood.
To have the best prospects of success you post as much information as possible, name, age and year and locations or as much as you have.

Maybe more relevant to Danes here in Australia, several FB groups cater to the local Danes.
