You can apply for equal status with Danish citizens if you belong to the Danish minority in Southern Slesvig

If you wish to apply for equal status with Danish citizens in accordance with this rule, you must be a German citizen but belong to the Danish minority in Southern Slesvig. You must be able to document your affiliation to Denmark, for example by documenting that you have attended one of the Danish schools under the Dansk Skoleforening for Sydslesvig (Danish School Association for Southern Slesvig) , or if you have been a member of Sydslesvigsk Forening (SSF) (Southern Slesvig Association) for a lengthy period of time.

This is what we do

We use the documentation you send to us in assessing whether you can be granted equal status with Danish citizens because you belong to the Danish minority in Southern Slesvig. You must enclose the documentation when you send us the information form for foreign citizens. You can for example document that you belong to the Danish minority in Southern Slesvig by sending us a copy of your diploma from Duborg-Skolen in Flensborg, A.P. Møller Skolen in Slesvig or one of the other schools under the Dansk Skoleforening.
In addition, previously we have granted equal status to applicants who have sent us documentation of membership of Sydslesvigsk Forening for five or more years.
