Requirements for Marriage Registration in Ukraine

Marriage applications are processed by local bodies of the State Registration Service of Ukraine.

Foreigners are required to provide the following documents:

  • passport (the original and a copy with a certified translation into Ukrainian);
  • a divorce decree, court judgment on marriage annulment or spouse's death certificate (these documents must be presented only by those previously married).

Documents should be legalized (or apostilled if a country of a foreigner’s nationality  is a party to the 1961 Hague Convention) and translated into Ukrainian.

Detailed information on the processing of marriage applications can be found at the State Registration Service of Ukraine website.
