More than 700 Danes died abroad in 2015

Hundreds of people from Denmark die abroad each year
Hundreds of Danes die abroad each year, the country’s Foreign Ministry has revealed. Most of these reside beyond Denmark’s borders, but many tourists also die from accidents and illness.
The ministry was informed about the deaths of 704 Danes abroad last year, which is about the same as previous years. But there are probably many more.
“It’s far from all deaths we are informed about. In many cases the Danish embassy will contact the authorities directly,” Ole Egberg Mikkelsen of the ministry’s citizen service department tells the Metroxpress newspaper.
“The majority of cases involve Danes living abroad, while a smaller portion are tourists and travellers.”
Top of the list for Danes passing away is Spain, followed by Thailand, Turkey, Germany, Greece, France, Italy, the US and Sweden.
