My fiance and i want to marry in romania. I have my birth certificate and certificate of no impediment legalised (apostilled in the UK) and officially translated in Romanian.

We cannot get a clear answer from anyone if i need anything else. There is a lot of info online re this posted BEFORE brexit. Some are saying I need to go to the British embassy (and request what?) others are saying I don't. I can only stay in the country for 3 weeks before I'd have to leave again so I need to be as organised as possible.

  • Just to be clear: after marrying in Romania, would you want to settle there? Also, does your fiance reside in Romania or elsewhere? (I am not certain that it matters in Romania but in some countries at least one of the parties to the marriage must reside in the jurisdiction where the wedding takes place.)

From https://dleps6.ro/starea-civila/inregistrarea-casatoriei/ (machine translated; there's a lot of text and formatting, so I have just copied and pasted the text without much regard to the formatting):

Marriage between a Romanian citizen and a foreign citizen (mixed marriage)

PRENUPTIAL MEDICAL CERTIFICATES (family doctor) - 14 days valid

MARRIAGE OFFICER - the 10th day from the submission of the complete file

  • OVERLEGALIZATION: - stamp of the MFA issuing state
  • the stamp of the Romanian Embassy / Consulate in the issuing state

  • MFA stamp from Romania

In the case of concluding a marriage between a Romanian citizen and a foreign citizen , the latter must present, in addition to the documents listed above, the proof issued by the diplomatic mission of the state of citizenship, accredited in Romania, showing that the foreign citizen fulfills the substantive conditions provided by its national law for concluding the marriage in Romania.

The citizens of the states with which Romania has concluded treaties / conventions / agreements of legal assistance in civil matters and family law will present documents issued by the competent authorities of the respective countries. These states are: the Republic of Albania, the Republic of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, the People's Republic of China, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Croatia, the Republic of Cuba, the French Republic, the Republic of Moldova, the People's Republic of Mongolia, the Republic of Poland, Russia, Republic of Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Republic of Hungary, Ukraine.

The documents issued by these states are EXEMPTED FROM APOSTILIZATION and OVERLEGALIZATION.

Citizens whose states do not have a diplomatic mission or consular office accredited in Romania will give statements on their own responsibility, authenticated by a notary public, showing that the future spouse, foreign citizen or stateless person, is not married and meets the substantive conditions required by its national law for the conclusion of the marriage.

  • @Ajurj yes, it looks that way, but I don't read Romanian and I certainly have no experience with Romanian authorities. In light of your other comment saying that you would like to settle in Romania after the marriage, I would suggest that you try to find some local expertise on Romanian immigration law. If you can't afford an immigration lawyer, perhaps there is an immigrants' rights society, or a more generalized legal aid society (or similar) that can offer advice or help you find it.
