aabf91441e8c4c79a9e696e4c6ac98e0I have been monitoring the situation with dual citizenship in Denmark. A friend pointed me to a discussion on the Americans in Denmark Part 2 group page that appeared on 16 November, 2014. ‘Larry Jf’ posted the following:

This past week the law allowing dual citizenship for those who become a Danish citizen was mentioned from the podium in the folketing (Parliament). That was treatment No.1 of the law. Treatment No.2 will be a debate of the law, which will take place soon and the final vote to pass the law will take place before the end of the year. I have this info from my contact in the folketing and since he is a folketing politician who has pushed for and will vote for the law I trust the info.

Indeed, I looked for the discussion in the Folketing’s Dagsorden and found it on their 13 November 2014 agenda. Here is a link (in Danish): http://www.ft.dk/samling/20141/lovforslag/L44/index.htm. So the law is on the agenda – they are recommending that it come into force in September 2015. Let’s keep fingers crossed and see how things go!
