Examination of impediments to marriage for non-eu + non-eu timeline.

Post by Kuzay » Sat Jan 09, 2021 7:54 pm

Hi,

I live in Finland based on my work residence permit and I'm non eu citizen.

My fiancee is also non-eu citizen. We want to get married in Finland and for that we need to go through examination of impediments to marriage first. We can get required certificates from our embassy on the same day, but a bit concerned how much time will it take for the examination to happen (my fiancee most likely will have about 2-3 weeks maximum to stay in Finland since she has a job in another country, so we want to get married quickly).

On dvv site it stands that the process usually takes several weeks for foreigners. Does anyone have experience how much time it usually takes for the examination of both are non-eu citizens? And is there any way to speed up the process like to tell dvv we have limited amount of time ?

She doesn’t need to be in the country for the process. You can start it, for example, a couple months before the wedding.

Thanks for the reply! Is it correct that I just need to get her marital certificate translated and legalised and then attach it to the examination application ?

You need to check DVV instructions on when it needs to be translated or legalised. Though, it wouldn't be rejected if one of the procedures was done unnecessarily.

No impediments to marriage certificate can be issued without your partner being present in Finland. You can get "no impediments to marriage" form signed by two witnesses (living in Finland) who can verify your signature. And then send the form to DVV office and have them certify that they have no prior record of your marriage. Once they complete their inspection, they will send you a "license to marry" form in mail. You have to get married within 3 months of receiving that certificate.

Are you confusing the process with the one for prenuptial agreements? The paper form has no requirement for witnesses.

I got an email from dvv that it's possible to go through examination process without both partners presented in the country, but all documents needs to be legalised.
