Impediments to marriage
Prior to booking time for a marriage ceremony, you must apply for a certificate of no impediment through the Swedish Tax Agency. Individuals who are registered abroad must also apply for a certificate of no impediment.
If there are no impediments to marriage you will receive two certificates. One regarding impediments and a marriage licence. The certificates are valid for four months.
When applying for a marriage licence, if you also wish to change your surname you can apply for this through the Swedish Tax Agency.
Read more about what applies to you on the Swedish Tax Agency’ s website.
