Danish birth certificate

A copy of a Danish birth certificate cannot be obtained through a Danish diplomatic mission.

Below you can see how to obtain it from Denmark.

If you require a copy of a Danish birth certificate you must contact either the church in Denmark where your birth was registered or the parish your last residential address in Denmark belonged to. Find the information on Danish Churches here and Danish "Sogn" here.

If you do not know where your birth was registered or which parish you belonged to then you must contact the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs in Denmark. Make sure to include all the information you have about your birth.
