When you apply for Danish citizenship by naturalisation, you must pay a fee of DKK 3,800 (2020).
This fee must be paid directly to the Ministry of Immigration and Integration when you submit the application.
If you submit your application via the online application solution, you must pay using Dankort.It is important that the payment can be linked to the right application. The applicant’s CPR number must therefore always be stated, regardless of the cardholder’s name.
If you submit a paper-based application, the fee must be paid to the Ministry of Immigration and Integration via the following account with Danske Bank: reg. No 0216, account number 4069073948.
The applicant’s CPR No must be stated in the ‘Message to payee’ field.
An acknowledgement of payment of the fee must be enclosed when a paper-based application is submitted.
In the case of payments from a foreign bank, the following information must be used:
BIC/SWIFT: DABADKKKIBAN: DK76 0216 4069 2050 11
What happens to your fee?
You will not need to pay the fee again if, for example, you submit another application after having had a previous application rejected.
The fee will not be refunded if your application is processed and rejected. The fee will also not normally be refunded if you withdraw your application. However, your fee will be refunded if the ministry refuses to process your application.
Via a Danish representation
If you submit your application via a Danish representation in your country of residence, the fee must be paid to the representation concerned.
Faroe Islands or Greenland?
If you have a residence on the Faroe Islands or in Greenland, the fee must be paid to the police.
When submitting their application to the police, applicants resident in Greenland must pay a fee of DKK 1,2000 (2020).
When submitting their application to the police, applicants resident on the Faroe Islands must pay a fee of DKK 1,200 (2020).
The difference between these fees and that payable by applicants resident in Denmark is due to the fact that different legislation concerning fees applies to applications for citizenship for applicants resident on the Faroe Islands and in Greenland.
Fees for children who apply as main person
Note that the rules concerning fees are different for children who apply as the main person and stateless persons who were born in Denmark.
