Applying for A Schengen or European Visa? You need and Unabridged Marriage Certificate

Why do I need an Unabridged Marriage Certificate?

If you are a South African citizen and are applying for any of the following you will require an Unabridged Marriage Certificate:

  • South African citizen application for a Schengen Visa to visit one or more of the 22 of the participating 26 Schengen treaty European countries (Note that different requirements may apply to the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland who have opted out of active participation in the treaty.)
  • South African citizen Application for an EU Visa
  • South African citizen application to register a business in the United Kingdom or Europe.

What is an Unabridged Marriage Certificate?

An Unabridged Marriage Certificate is the most detailed version of one’s marriage registration certificate.

How can I obtain my Unabridged Marriage Certificate?

A typical Unabridged Marriage Certificate application at a South African Home Affairs office can take between 4 – 12 weeks to process. It is therefore prudent to ensure that one applies well in advance of any Schengen visa applications, travel bookings or business registration applications.

A typical application made through Q-Pro, a document sourcing company unrelated to SA Home Affairs can take 7-14 working days from the acceptance of an application.
