Denmark opened its first Honorary Consulate in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on 1 November 2019. The Honorary Consul is Mr. Kjeld M. Olsen, a long time Danish businessman and resident of Cambodia. The post is unpaid and the consul is not employed or posted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but appointed in his own capacity – officially by Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
At the consulate Danes may apply for emergency passports, extend the validity of passports, childcare passports (children under 12), ordering a driving license (exclusively for citizens with an address in Denmark), international driving license and translation of driving license.
The newly appointed Honorary consul Kjeld M. Olsen is quoted on the website of the Royal Danish Embassy in Bangkok:
“I am equally proud and humbled by both the title and the assignments,” he says.
