Get a marriage certificate

Last update12 avr. 2021

What is it?

The marriage certificate is an official document that testifies to the union between two people. It may be required for certain administrative procedures: the request for a family record book, a divorce, etc.

It is one of the "civil status" documents that are issued by the OFPRA, once you have obtained the status of refugee. The birth certificate, or the death certificate of a spouse are other examples of "civil status" documents that the OPFRA can issue.

Also read our Refugees.info file on the birth certificate

You can request a marriage certificate either for yourself or for a member of your family (your spouse, your parents or grandparents, your children or grandchildren).

Good to know : Before taking any action, you need to know your file number. It can be found on any document issued by OFPRA.

The marriage certificate request can be made online on the OFPRA website .
