- The Danish Foreign Ministry has declared Germany a risk area
- Tourist entry to Denmark is no longer possible from October 31, 2020. So far, people from Schleswig-Holstein are exempt from this.
And now the good news:
- The Danish marriage certificate is valid for 4 months.
- If you are unable to get married in Denmark during this time due to entry restrictions, a new free certificate will be issued upon request.
Due to the sharp increase in the number of infections, the Danish government has declared Germany a risk area. Tourist entries are no longer possible from October 24th, 2020 without an important reason. A wedding date is not recognized as an important reason. The only exceptions to this rule are people who are resident in Schleswig-Holstein. The Danish registry offices have already suspended all agreed wedding dates.
Couples who entered Denmark before October 24th, 2020 can still keep the agreed date for marriage.
On the Danish Police website you will find further and up-to-date information on traveling to Denmark (in English)
The Federal Foreign Office had already issued a travel warning for the Hovedstaden region on September 23, 2020. These include the holiday island of Bornholm and the capital Copenhagen. Those returning from risk areas have to go into a 14-day quarantine. The German government does not currently issue a travel warning for any other region in Denmark. On the website of the Robert Koch Institute you will find information on the designation of international risk areas by the Federal Foreign Office, BMG and BMI.
Before you can even get married in Denmark, you have to apply for a certificate of marital status at the Danish Agency for Family Law by submitting your documents and a comprehensive application. The marriage certificate is valid for a maximum of 4 months after it is issued. If you are not able to get married in Denmark within this period due to the restrictions caused by the corona pandemic, the Danish authorities will issue a new free certificate upon request. You don't have to pay a new processing fee.
So use the time of travel restrictions to apply for a certificate of marital status in Denmark now. Because when the border is open again, we can quickly offer you free appointments again.

Why get married in Denmark?
Getting married in Denmark is much easier than in Germany, as the Danish family law agency requires considerably fewer documents and a wedding date can be arranged more quickly. A marriage ceremony in Denmark is the solution, especially for binational couples, because you do not need a certificate of marital status or a birth certificate. If the authorities in your home country do not issue official certificates of marital status, you must inform the Danish state administration. Otherwise, all you need is an official certificate of marital status. Same-sex couples can also get married in Denmark. Nevertheless, the marriage is recognized without any problems in Germany and worldwide.

Official certificate of marital status is required.
Denmark is taking stronger action against marriages of convenience than before. From January 2019, new legal changes came into force that make it no longer as easy for foreigners to get married as previously in Denmark. There is a ban on marriages of convenience in Denmark.
The application for a certificate of marital status must be submitted to the state administration. This checks the application for marriage after sending the complete documents and paying the administrative fee. The fee is 1,650 Danish kroner (€ 225). The authority will review the application within 5 working days.
In addition, an official certificate of marital status must be attached. Proof is usually provided by the city office with an extended registration certificate. If the authorities in the country where you live cannot issue official certificates, this must be reported to the Danish authorities.
If a marriage of convenience is suspected, the state administration can invite you for a personal interview.
We would be happy to support you with the implementation of your marriage in Denmark.
