Legal age for marriage is 18 years for both men and women.
The couple may not be related.
Only civil ceremonies are legal in Luxembourg and must take place at the Town Hall.
Two witnesses are required.
One of you must be an official resident of Luxembourg in order to legally marry there.
If you are resident in Luxembourg you should start the paperwork at least three months before the ceremony (for non Luxembourg citizens), and must submit the paperwork at least one month before the ceremony.
One of you must go to the Registrar in the commune where one of you lives and take both your passports or ID cards.
The Registrar will give you the forms to fill in to give your notice of intention to marry.
You must be able to provide the following information:
Passports or ID cards.
Birth certificates issued less than six months ago with the names of both parents on.
A residency certificate for Luxembourg, or something that proves where you live if one of you does not live in Luxembourg.
For non Luxembourg nationals you will need to provide a certificate to prove that you are single (which can usually be obtained from a solicitor in your home country).
If you have been divorced then the final divorce papers must be shown along with the previous marriage certificate.
If you are widowed then the death certificate of your previous spouse must be shown.
Please note: some nationalities may require additional papers. Please check with the relevant commune for details.
If you already have children then show the Registrar their birth certificate(s) if you wish to have them legalised by your marriage.
All documents must be provided in either French, German or English. If your documents are not in any of those languages then they must be translated by an official translator and stamped with an apostille.
