Marriage in Estonia

05.05.2015

In order to get married in Estonia, the couple must submit a written application to a Vital Statistics Office, notary or minister of religion with the right to marry couples.

For detailed information about the required document and the possible need for translations please contact the notary, church or Vital Statistics Office in Estonia were you have planned to get married. The list of required documents for getting married at the Tallinn Vital Statistics Office is on their website: http://www.tallinn.ee/eng/Contraction-of-marriage 

British citizen’s will need their valid passport, birth certificate, certificate of no impediment (and divorce certificate if divorced) in order to get married in Estonia.

British citizens can apply for a certificate of no impediment at their local register office in UK: https://www.gov.uk/marriage-abroad

The UK birth certificate, certificate of no impediment (and divorce certificate if divorced) have to be legalised (apostilled) by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office: http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/about-us/what-we-do/services-we-deliver/legal-services/Legalisation/.

UK issues certificates of no impediment only to British citizens. Therefore, if an Estonian citizen, who lives in UK, is required to present a confirmation that he/she has not married in the UK, then it is not possible to get such a document from UK. In this case, an Estonian citizen has to make a written statement while getting married in Estonia to confirm, that there are no obstacles for him/her to get married.

If required, it is possible to apply for a reissue of your Estonian marriage certificate in English from the Embassy by post. For additional info click here
