Marriage

Procedure for marriage between Brazilians and Luxembourgers celebrated in Luxembourg

The spouse who is Brazilian must provide the documents requested by the Commune that the wedding will take place.

The original Brazilian documents must have the “apostille” done by the Registry, according to the Hague Convention.

Make a sworn translation in French, German or Luxembourgish of all Brazilian documents that will be presented, except passport. Recognize the translator’s signature in a notary’s office and do the “apostille” of this recognition in the Registry itself.

It is not necessary to bring the documents to the Consulate for any procedure. If you wish, as a separate service, it is possible for the Consulate to check the documents already apostilled and accompanied by sworn translations. For information about this service provision, send an email to: attache@consuladoluxemburgo.com.br

We now proceed to the list of Brazilian documents usually requested in the Communes to be presented in Luxembourg,  but you must confirm in the Commune that will perform the wedding,  the list of requested documents.

  • Original birth certificate, with a date of issue up to 3 months;
  • Original of a single declaration issued by a notary or public deed of civil status, with notarized signature. Recent issue date of a maximum 03 months;
