On September 1st 2015 a new Nationality Act concerning multiple nationalities comes into force.  The new legislation will allow a number of citizens to reacquire or retain their Danish citizenship while also having or obtaining another citizenship.

Former Danish citizens, who have lost their Danish nationality by acquiring a foreign nationality, will be able to reacquire their nationality by making a declaration to The State Administration (Statsforvaltningen), provided they fulfil certain requirements. The declaration must be made between September 1st 2015 and August 31st 2020.

You can read more about the new law on the Danish Ministry of Justice's homepage.
