Marriage in Denmark

Marriage in Denmark 2019

Marriage in Denmark - easy, fast and unbureaucratic

Especially for non-citizens of the EU staying in the EU it is often complicated to collect all the documents needed for a marriage in the home country. It takes time for the documents to be examined, so that some might already lose their validity. This could lead to additional costs.

To get married in Denmark, therefore, is an easy and uncomplicated alternative. It offers a less bureaucratic opportunity for a marriage. This is why marriage in Denmark is so popular, especially among couples of different nationalities. A marriage contracted in Denmark is legally recognized all over Europe and other countries.


New laws for marriage in Denmark from 2019

From 1.1.2019 new laws regarding marriage came into force

The change affects both: required documents and the entire process.

Before 2019, documents were checked at the registry office where the wedding was to take place. The process has changed completely from 2019 onwards. The examination of the documents is now carried out exclusively by the Central Commission in Denmark. The Commission grants a marriage license if the examination of the documents has been positive. In the next step, an appointment for the marriage will be arranged with the selected registry office.

There are 4 instances that prepare the marriage. Each instance takes time

  1. Customer
  2. Our Agency
  3. Danish Public Administration
  4. Registry office
  5. The mostly delay in preparation lies with customers and Danish state administration. We answer all emails daily and check your documents and forms within 1 working day .

    When documents are prepared and the payment made, our organization work begins in Denmark. Danish Public Administration promises to spend the marriage license within 5-7 working days if all documents are in order. However, it is not always the case. It is not possible to influence the state administration to prioritize the documents of a couple.

    Because we have a lot of experience with many registry offices, we can get you a date to marry in the shortest possible time if we have got the license from the state administration.

    Ideally, the process runs like this
