There are different requirements for retaining your Danish citizenship when you are not born in Denmark. These requirements will be elaborated online on the platform Zoom. We would like to point out that this webinar does not inform on the rules of reacquisition of Danish citizenship.

If you are born abroad and you have never lived or stayed in Denmark under conditions that indicate cohesion to Denmark, you will be at risk of forfeiting your Danish citizenship upon your 22nd birthday. Danes Worldwide recommends that Danish children born abroad always applies for retention of Danish citizenship.

At the webinar, Karoline Blyt, legal advisor at Danes Worldwide, will talk about the basic conditions for retaining Danish citizenship and the practical measures of the application process.

Program for the webinar:

  • What is retention of Danish citizenship and is it relevant for you/your children?
  • Requirements for retention of Danish citizenship
  • The EU Court’s decision from 2019, known as the Tjebbes ruling, and why it is relevant for Danish retention cases

Retention of Danish citizenship – a Danes Worlwide key issue

Danes Worldwide wants to reduce case processing time and remove unnecessary bureaucratic requirements, especially now that Denmark allows dual citizenship. This can be achieved by simplifying the procedure for retention by e.g. replacing the retention application with a declaration of good faith.
