Getting married in Finland – the paperwork

We will assist you with the steps you need to take in order to be married in Finland and take care of the local arrangements on your behalf.

Local registry office instructions:

“If neither of the spouses is a Finnish national and neither of them have a place of residence in Finland, they must present an account stating, that marrying in Finland is allowed in their country of nationality or residence, in addition to the statement of marital status. The statement must be authenticated. If required, the statement must be translated, and if the translation is carried out abroad then the translation must also be authenticated.”

What you need:

– An authenticated account that your country allows you to marry in Finland

– A statement of marital status from his/her home country

Note: these documents may have to be translated and authenticated
