A number of internationals and Danes are meeting up at the parliament building of Christiansborg on the morning of Thursday December 18 to look on as the Danish parliament discusses and signs the long-awaited law that will allow dual citizenship in Denmark.

Larry Feinberg, an American who runs a number of meetup groups for foreigners in Denmark and has campaigned for years for dual citizenship, said that anyone could come down and see the historic moment in person.

”It's great. It's been a long and exhausting fight for this. Finally people are going to get something out of it. I feel really good that the dual citizenship issue is drawing to a close,” Feinberg told the Copenhagen Post.

”We've been calling for this for a long time. This is history being made and anyone who wants to come along can do so and meet us outside Christiansborg.”

Meet-up info
Those interested can meet Feinberg and the rest of the group at 09:20 in front of the public entrance of Christiansborg, which is located around the left corner of the main entrance to Christiansborg.

People have been able to apply for dual citizenship in Denmark since June, when parliament approved dual citizenship.

Every party except Dansk Folkeparti and Konservative are on board with the dual citizenship law.
