MARRIAGE REQUIREMENTS

Both partners will most likely need:

  • A valid passport

  • An official birth certificate

  • Proof of a minimum of 21 days of continuous residence in Germany (this can be a Meldebescheinigung issued by the local Anmeldeamt)

  • Proof of being single (Ledigkeitsbescheinigung)

  • Birth certificates of children (if any) the couple may have had together

  • The required application and questionnaire from the Standesamt

One or both partners may have to provide the following depending on their particular circumstances and the requirements of the local magistrate's office:

  • Certificate of No Impediment (CNI) (Befreiung vom Ehefähigkeitszeugnis)

  • Marriage certificates from previous marriages

  • A financial statement

Persons who were previously married must present either a death certificate for the former spouse or proof that the marriage was permanently dissolved by divorce. The former is usually no problem; the latter a rock on which many marriage plans have been wrecked. A simple divorce decree from an American or British court is usually not enough. Proof probably will be required that this decree can no longer be contested. It is usually necessary to get a statement to this effect from the court that granted the divorce.

Certified translations of non-German language documentation may also be required and many documents' issue dates shouldn't be older than six months.

If one or both partners is a foreigner

If either one of the partners is a foreigner documents may be sent to a higher regional court in order to verify the legal status of that person.

Though it is no bar to a marriage, those planning to return to their homeland one day may wish to consider the legal status of their partner. There may be some bar, such as nationality, criminal record or medical condition, that would keep the partner from accompanying you. Your embassy or consulate can advise you on all emigration formalities. It is also a good idea to check if a marriage in Germany will be recognized in your home country.

Civil Partnerships in Germany were recognized legally in 2001. The law was passed essentially to pave the way for same-sex marriages. While the process was the same when getting married or entering into a civil partnership, there were some legal differences between the two unions. The German legislature voted to remove those legal differences in July 2017. On October 1, 2017 same-sex marriage became legal with all the benefits and obligations of marriage as prescribed by the Constitution. The passage of the law has obviated the need for any future “civil partnerships.” Couples already entered into a civil partnership can convert that to an official marriage or can continue with the civil partnership and enjoy the full legal protections and obligation of a marriage.

It should be noted that same-sex marriages that are officially recognized in other countries, are also recognized as legal marriages in Germany.

Berlin's architecture is quite varied.

Berlin loves techno – and that’s why it’s only in Berlin where you can realise how varied and electrifying this music can be. With Berghain and Watergate you have the choice between two of the best clubs in the world, guaranteed.

Berlin is a very cosmopolitan and international city. This reflects directly in the wide range of supermarkets and restaurants. A highlight the Turkish cuisine, which can be found anywhere in the city. In every corner, more precisely! The big reason is due the fact that Berlin has the highest concentration of Turks outside Turkey. Indian, Greek food and many African countries also mark a strong presence in all districts of the city, besides the great Italian restaurants! The city has even the largest chain of vegan supermarkets in the world, called Veganz and also has the first vegan avenue in the world, the Schivelbeiner Straße.

Diving, sailing, rowing, surfing, water skiing - the offer of water sports in Berlin is huge. This is not surprising as our city is surrounded by lakes and the river Spree. If you prefer quiet activities on the water, you will like renting a boat; if you need action instead, you will certainly enjoy wakeboarding.
