(CS) While the Danish embassy to Luxembourg is set to close its doors later this year, consular services will remain available, for example for passports and expat voting.

While the Danish embassy in Brussels will generally take over matters relating to Luxembourg, a local consulate will remain in place.

At the consulate Danes can apply for a new biometric passport. However, delegates from Brussels will only travel to Luxembourg twice a year with special equipment needed to gather data for the passport.

For year-round applications, Danish residents can contact any Danish representation with the right equipment, with the nearest located in Brussels. Danes can also apply for passports when visiting Denmark.

The Danish consulate in Luxembourg will continue issuing emergency/temporary passports, as well as passports for children under the age of 12. The consulate will also remain in charge of expat voting.

However, for visa services, residence permits and related services, as well as translations and certificates the Danish embassy in Brussels will take over.

If Danish residents find themselves in urgent need of consular assistance they can contact the Luxembourg consulate, the embassy in Brussels or the Danish Foreign Ministry's service (+45 33 92 11 12 / BBB@um.dk)

The Danish embassy in Luxembourg in will close its doors on August 1. However, from June 1, callers will be forwarded to the consulate or the embassy in Brussels for citizen enquiries.
