LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR GETTING MARRIED IN SERBIA
The marriage of UK citizens (as well as Irish) in Serbia is legally binding under UK law.
You will need to obtain a Certificate of No Impediment (Certificate of Freedom to Marry in Ireland) which is document required by the Serbian authorities for the marriage to take place. This is done by Giving Notice at your local registry office no more than 6-month before your wedding date; 29 days after you have given notice, the registry office will release a certificate of No Impediment. This document has to bear the “stamp apostille” to validate the document.
Required documentation (all documents ought to bear Apostille stamp issued by FCO https://www.gov.uk/get-document-legalised):
• Certificate of No Impediment bearing the Apostille stamp
• Certificate de coutume & MP2 Form (Irish Citizens only), bearing the stamp Apostille (you can obtain from the Foreign Office in London)
• Original long Birth Certificate, bearing Apostille stamp
• If you are divorced-a Decree Nisi and Decree Nisi Absolute & previous marriage Certificate, bearing Apostille stamp
• If you have changed your name – Deed Poll, bearing Apostille stamp
All documentation must be original or certified copies and your Certificate of No Impediment must not be older than 3 month.
All documentation must be submitted to the Register Office 30 days prior to your wedding taking place, transleted into Serbian.
We strongly advise you to consult the Register Office for first hand information on legal requirements for getting married in the Republic of Serbia.
