The Benefits of Dual Citizenship
The legislation permitting dual citizenship came into force in Denmark on 1 September 2015. It has significant practical impact for many Danes living around the world in that it allows them to become citizens in their countries of residence WITHOUT forfeiting the Danish citizenship.
In addition, dual citizenship lets expat Danes particiate in the societies in which they live day to day – for example by voting or running for office in elections. Finally, Danes who previously did forfeit their Danish citizenship may now reacquire it (within a time limit of 5 years from 1 September 2015).
