Inspiring Tales From Our Community

Dive into the amazing stories of strength and resilience displayed by Bhutanese refugees in Denmark.

Nu kan de ikke få statsborgerskab

Between 2008 and 2015, Danish authorities agreed to receive quota refugees from seven camps in Nepal, with the aim of resettling 845 stateless Bhutanese people in Denmark. However, strict citizenship rules have prevented most from obtaining Danish citizenship, with language requirements proving particularly challenging for many who have not had formal education. As a result, only 2% of the original group have obtained citizenship, leaving the majority still stateless. ABC Denmark, an association of Bhutanese communities in Denmark, is now appealing to the Danish government to recognize their unique situation and facilitate their path to citizenship.

A Better Education for Everyone

Born stateless to Bhutanese refugees in Nepal, I was resettled in Denmark at 11, eagerly embracing the culture and language. Now, despite feeling Danish and defending its values, I remain stateless due to restrictive residency laws and paperwork. My provisional residency must be renewed biennially, and I possess a convention passport, not a regular one. European travel requires lengthy airport stays, and visa applications are mandatory for non-European countries. Danish citizenship is a complex, lengthy process, hindered by my temporary residency status. My brother, despite being an educated engineer, faces similar challenges. Denmark’s current legislation supports statelessness, contradicting its aim for a permanent solution for Bhutanese refugees.
