Although the information is relevant and accurate we still need to inquire at the city office should you decide to get married.

We need to confirm that the requirements are still relevant and that the city office does not have any special additional requirements for that geographic area.

If you do not see the nationality you would like to know about on the list please inquire to us directly as we might have the information but have not put it on our list yet.
