Travel and Residence

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark has no liability for the accuracy of the information available on the website, which is provided by other authorities. The Ministry cannot be held liable for any third-party claims or losses of any damages based on the information provided on the website.

As a general rule, the Danish Foreign Service will assist all Danish nationals and – in as far as possible – foreigners with a permanent address in Denmark. However, persons not holding Danish nationality, or persons holding dual nationality, cannot be certain that the authorities of the country in question will accept that Denmark offer assistance, if the case in question is a conflict with the authorities of that country – e.g. cases of imprisonment.

As a general rule, a fee is applicable for most services, with the exceptions of child abduction cases, cases of imprisonment and in the instance of a serious crime committed against a Danish national.

The Danish Foreign Service is not empowered to grant funds in cases where Danish nationals and foreign nationals with a permanent address in Denmark are in need while travelling abroad. This applies whether it concerns requests to borrow money for a ticket back to Denmark, payment of hospital bills, medical evacuation to Denmark, legal costs etc.

For advise, to Danish nationals on travelling abroad, please visit the Consular home page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Råd om udlandsrejser og Rejsevejledninger, Danish only).
