Armenia Portal

The Armenian community in Denmark numbers approximately 1,200.[1] They make up the population of refugees from Armenia, and also some from Iran and Iraq. They mainly used the churches in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense.[2] The Armenian refugees were served in the church with a priest from the Armenian community in Sweden.[1] In 2003, an agreement was signed between the Danish and Armenian governments, allowing forced repatriation of illegal immigrants. 100 Armenians living illegally in Denmark were reported to be subject to the measure.[3]

The community

In 2005, The Danish Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs recognised the Armenian Apostolic Church in Denmark as a congregation with juridical rights to administer marriage ceremonies and with certain privileges as regards taxation.[1]
