Thousands of Danish-born denied passport under tough Citizenship Law

An increasing number of people in Denmark have a so-called ‘Alien’s Passport’ recognising them as “stateless” because they can neither get a Danish passport, nor are eligible for a foreign one, reports DR. While this is the case for many refugees and their reunified family members, tight Danish legislation means their children, born in Denmark, are too. Between 2012 and 2014, some 8,000 to 9,000 people a year were issued an Alien’s Passport. In recent years, the figure has risen to around 14,000 annually, according to documents from the Danish Immigration Service.
