Danish Embassy in KL suspends passport applications for grownups

The Royal Danish Embassy in Kuala Lumpur announced on 22 December 2020 that the embassy will cease to accept passport applications for applicants aged 12 and above on 1 February 2021.

After this date, applicants can submit their passport applications at any Danish Embassy with full passport service or at a any Borgerservice center in Denmark. Applicants will have the option to collect the new passports at the Danish Embassy in Kuala Lumpur until 1.4.2021, or at any one of the Danish Consulates in Malaysia.

The following consular services should remain uninterrupted:
1. Lodging an application for a new passport for applicants age 11 and below.
2. Lodging and application for International Driving License.
3. Legalizations and minor translations.
4. Emergency passports

Danes in Malaysia who need a new passport, and will not be travelling to Denmark or another country where passport applications can be submitted, are encouraged to apply for a passport at the embassy during the month of January 2021. Appointments can be made by contacting [email protected].

Since the embassy will be closed during the coming year, options are being explored for future short visits in Kuala Lumpur by the Royal Danish Embassy in Jakarta with portable biometric equipment to accept passport applications for Danes in Malaysia.
