Getting Married in Switzerland

Marriage Requirements


Only civil marriages are recognised in Switzerland and these take place in a registry office. However, most couples choose to follow this with a religious ceremony. The documents required are photo ID, such as a driver's licence or passport, birth certificates, notarised affidavit, and a completed marriage request form. It takes about 5 weeks for approval and the banns to be published after which the wedding can take place in a minimum of 10 days and no more than 3 months after the approval has been given.
