Do I send my current passport with the renewal application?



Do I need to send a copy of my passport with my application?



How will I know if the Embassy has received my application? 

Unless you are contacted directly about your passport application, an acknowledgement of payment in your bank records is confirmation your application has been received and processed. We will not charge your card until your application is complete, including any documents or photos.


How long will it take?

Passports are currently taking around ten weeks from receipt of a fully completed application and payment to arrive at the Embassy. Incomplete applications will cause delays.

Please contact the Embassy on +45 7026 3676 or email [email protected] to discuss options.


Will the Embassy post my new passport to me?

We will post your new passport to the postal address provided on your passport renewal application form (PC7), using the postal service you have chosen and paid for via your payment authorisation form.
