Requesting a marriage certificate

A marriage certificate is a legal record of civil status. It is an authenticated document, issued by the civil registrar, serving as proof of the marital status of the named spouses.

The marriage certificate is always filed in the Luxembourg commune where the civil wedding ceremony took place.

It is prepared in advance by the civil registrar and is then signed by the spouses and the civil registrar during the wedding ceremony.

A copy or an extract of this certificate is often necessary during certain administrative procedures such as:

In the case of applications submitted online, by post or telephone, the documents will be sent by post to the address indicated in the application.

The marriage certificate includes all the mandatory information for a civil status certificate (year, date and time of issue; name and first name(s) of the civil registrar; names, first names and domiciles of all named persons), and also the following:

  • each spouse’s name and first name(s), gender, date and place of birth, and current address (city, commune, country);
  • the name and first name(s) of each spouse’s parents, their gender and domicile (including mention of their death, if deceased);

  • the consent of the parents, the family council, or the ad hoc guardian, and the approval of the judge in guardianship matters, if required;
  • the announcements published in the various places of domicile;
  • the declaration by the named persons that they accept each other as spouse, and the formal recognition of their union by the government official;
