No -

Following a number of scandals in which unsuspecting emigrants were conned by Danish emigration
agents, The Danish parliament passed more stringent regulations on May 1, 1868.
According to the new law, The Copenhagen Chief of Police was to approve and monitor
all emigration agents in Denmark and authorize all overseas tickets made out in Denmark.
This was to be done whether an emigrant would be traveling directly from Copenhagen to
the United States or indirectly via another European harbor for destinations overseas.
